A Cornish hen, roasted to perfection with an apple-scented glaze, is fancy enough for a special occasion, but easy enough for a simple dinner for two.

Ingredients

1
fresh or frozen Rock Cornish hen (24 oz), thawed
3/4
cup ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
2
tablespoons apple jelly
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
3/4
cup frozen sugar snap peas

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Remove giblets; split hen in half. Rinse and pat dry. Place skin sides up in ungreased 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish. Arrange carrots around hen.
  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, cook jelly, butter, salt and marjoram over low heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until warm. Brush half of sauce over hen and carrots. Cover with foil.
  • 3 Bake 40 minutes. Uncover; brush with remaining sauce. Add peas; bake 20 minutes longer, brushing with pan juices once or twice, until hen is fork tender, its juices run clear and vegetables are tender.
Tips  

Cut each hen in half along backbone from tail to neck, using kitchen scissors.
