foodlover's picture
  Dried rosemary 3⁄4 Teaspoon, crumbled
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Crushed red pepper flakes 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cornish game hens 2 1⁄2 Ounce, split lengthwise (2 Hens Of 1 1/4 Pound Each)
  Olive oil 3 Tablespoon
  Lemon 1 , thinly sliced

In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper.
Add the hens and, with your hands, rub the seasoning mixture into the hens.
Add the olive oil and lemon slices and toss well to combine.
Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
Heat a 10"x 18" non-stick double-burner pan over medium heat.
Lift the Cornish hens from the marinade and place, skin side down, in the pan; discard the marinade.
Cook, turning the hens several times, until they are cooked through and browned, 30 to 40 minutes.
Serve with lemon wedges, if you like.
