Lemon Thyme Cornish Game Hens

Making easy look gourmet!  I am not a game meat kind of person, but cornish game hens are not a gamey meat.  I made this dish for my first Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago.  It’s an easy recipe for 2 when you don’t have the need to make an entire turkey, and it looks fantastic.

2 cornish game hens (2.5 pounds)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 t thyme
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/8 t paprika


  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Place hens in a shallow pan.
  3. Spoon half the sauce and cook for 40-45 minutes while basting with the remaining sauce.
