Cornish Game Hens & Endive Salad


Sometimes we find inspiration in the most unexpected places.


Cornish Game Hens & Endive Salad
Serves 2

Ingredients

2 Cornish game hens, defrosted, rinsed, patted dry, and trussed
Olive oil
Dried herbs of choice (I used Herbes de Provence)
Salt and pepper

For the salad:
Endive
Mache, arugula, spinach, or watercress
Toasted pine nuts or walnuts
Shaved Parmesan or blue cheese
Favorite vinaigrette (I mix olive oil, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard)


Method

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rub hens with olive oil and season with herbs, salt, and pepper. Place in shallow roasting pan and roast for 45-55 minutes, until golden brown and juices run clear.

Arrange endive, mache, pine nuts, and Parmesan on a platter. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve Cornish game hens on same platter, but make sure that "everyone gets their own little baby chicken on their own little baby plate" and enjoy!
