Instructions

  • Skewer neck skin of hens to back; tie legs to tail. Twist wings under back. Place hens, breast up, on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan.
  • Place carrots, parsnips, turnips, and onions around hens in pan.
  • Combine oil, garlic, rosemary, oregano, and salt; brush onto hens and vegetables.
  • Roast, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until hens are no longer pink and the drumsticks move easily in their sockets.
  • During roasting, turn vegetables occasionally. Transfer hens from roasting pan to serving platter. Cover and keep warm. Remove rack from roasting pan.
  • Stir vegetables. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F. Continue roasting vegetables for 15 to 20 minutes more or until tender and browned.
  • To serve, using a slotted spoon, spoon vegetables around hens on platter. Makes 4 servings.

Notes

If you are using a thermometer, the internal temperature of the hens should be 180 degrees F.
