Herb Roasted Honey Mustard Game Hens
2 Game hens, thawed (you could do 4 if you need to and double the sauce)
Poultry seasoning ( or a mixture of Sage, Rosemary and Thyme)
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup honey
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
While the oven preheats, butterfly the game hens down the middle of the breast bone and open up. Sprinkle Salt, pepper and poultry seasoning lightly over both sides. Please game hens skin side up in a casserole pan or large cookie sheet. Bake in oven for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until juices run clear and they reach 165 to 170 in the thickest part of the thigh.
Mix the honey and Dijon mustard together and baste the hens as they cook about every 15 minutes. I poured what was left of my sauce over the birds and let cook the last 15 minutes.
These were delicious! It was easy and the meat fell off the bone and had that mustard sweetness of the sauce and the seasoning of the herbs! Enjoy!!
