Spice Chicks Rosemary Orange Cornish Game Hens

In mid-Michigan last night, we received a snow storm that left a beautiful, fluffy coat of white that was about 5 inches deep and on a night like this, the oven is your best friend. Not only does it heat the house, but it also brings amazing aromas from whatever you are roasting. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to break out some Cornish game hens that I had been saving in my freezer for just such an occasion.

Here’s what you’ll need….
2 (or more) Cornish game hens (rinsed and pin feathers removed)
1 Spanish Onion, coarsely diced
1/2 Cup Orange marmalade
1 1/2 TBSP Spice Chicks Tuscan Temptress – Rosemary Orange Blend
1/2 Orange cut into wedges

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
In a large baking dish, place the diced Spanish onions into a “bed” for the Cornish game hens. Place Cornish game hens on top and stuff cavities with orange wedges. Place orange marmalade in a microwave safe container and heat until it turns to liquid. Coat game hens with melted marmalade and then sprinkle with Spice Chicks Tuscan Temptress Rosemary Orange Blend. Place in the oven and roast for approximately 1 hour, or until cavity and thigh juices run clear.
