This is my Mom, Melva Jean:)
She was born in Oklahoma, but has spent nearly her entire life in Arizona. Today’s recipe, Cornish Game Hens with Herbs and Orange Sauce is her own original recipe, and I am going to share it with you right now. And may I just say it was DELICIOUS! We also steamed PURPLE CAULIFLOWER! My hubby and Mom were both skeptical, but it tastes just like white cauliflower, and it was yummy, too.
We cleaned it good and removed the stem and leaves, then steamed it for a few minutes in the wok with about a cup of water.
As this dinner serves four, I took 4 Cornish game hens, thoroughly cleaned them, and placed them in baking dishes. Then I took a bunch of herbs, (lemon grass, thyme, and rosemary), and washed those as well.
Now the hens are ready to cook. Wrap the baking dishes with foil and place in a 325 degree oven for about an hour and a half. Take a peek at them after an hour of cooking to see how they are doing. When the leg easily falls off, the hens are done.
