Outils de cuisine:


  1. If using an oven, Preheat oven to Roast 375⁰F

  2. Place the game hens in a large roasting pan, breast side up

  3. Put a half lemon inside each hen

  4. Brush each game hen with coconut oil with the baster

  5. Sprinkle the salt and rosemary all over each hen

  6. Place in the oven and roast for approximately 50 minutes, or until the internal temperature using a meat thermometer is 165⁰. The game hens will be a beautiful golden brown when they are done.

  7. There’s a lot of meat on the hens, so for smaller eaters they can be split in half to serve two people per hen.

  8. Leftovers are wonderful on a salad to make another meal in itself. In fact, we usually try to make extra so we don’t have to cook the next night.



*If you are using a BBQ, roast over medium heat

*If using a crockpot, start the pot on high, but then drop the temperature down to low after an hour, cooking for approximately 3-4 hours more. The meat will fall off the bone and have a lot more moisture to it.

Allergy/Health Information:

Organic game hens are a lean source of protein.  A good rule of thumb is to vary your foods in order to obtain a variety of nutrients from a multitude of sources.
