This is my version of the recipe, I have the whole one somewhere that includes stuffing so write if you need it. The juice is terrific if you cook in saucepan to reduce after cooking


  • 2 Rock Cornish Game Hens
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 3/4 cup red wine


Rub birds inside and out with lemon and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 450F. Place birds, breast side up, in roasting pan and cover breasts with bacon. Cook for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 and add red wine. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, basting occasionally and adding more wine if needed
