Butterflied Cornish Hens with Sage Butter (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 01/05/2016 - I love Cornish hens. They're as easy to make as chicken, and seem to make any occasion more special.

Photo: CC--ken hawkinsIn this version, Cornish hens are butterflied, then prepared in a sage butter to deliver a savory dinner entree. It's easy to make and sure to please.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cornish game hens, butterflied, about 1-1½ pounds each
  • 2 strips bacon, chopped
  • ½ stick butter, softened
  • 3-4 sage leaves, finely chopped
  • zest of ½ lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Splash of olive oil

Directions:
Heat oven to 425F.

Place hens on a sheet tray fitted with a cooling rack in the refrigerator to dry skin out for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a small pan over medium heat, melt butter with sage, zest, salt and pepper.

Remove hens from refrigerator.

Heat 2 large sauté pans over medium heat, lightly coat with oil.

Season hens with salt and pepper and sear, skin side down, in the pans.

Sear about 7 to 10 minutes, until skin turns golden brown and crispy.

Flip birds over, and baste with sage butter.

Sprinkle tops with chopped bacon and place in heated oven to finish cooking, 25 to 30 minutes, basting occasionally.

Rest birds at least 10 minutes before serving warm.

Serves up to 4 people.

If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer ...
