Just in time for the holiday season, here’s a recipe for roasted Cornish game hens, prepared with a gluten free San-J Teriyaki sauce:
Roasted Cornish Game Hens With Orange Teriyaki Sauce
Recipe by Carol Kicinski
1 cup San-J Teriyaki Sauce
1 cup Orange Juice
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 piece Fresh Ginger, (2 inch by 1 inch) finely grated
6 Cornish game hens (1 – 1 ¼ pound each)
1 cup Gluten Free Chicken Stock
Salt and Pepper
Whisk together the San-J Teriyaki Sauce, orange juice, garlic, and ginger. Place game hens in a large food storage bag, add 1 cup of the marinade, reserving the rest, and let the hens marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a rack on a rimmed baking sheet and arrange the hens on the rack. Drizzle each hen with the marinade from the bag. Roasted the hens for 35 – 40 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees, basting occasionally with some of the reserved marinade.
Transfer the hens to a platter, cover with foil and let sit while preparing the sauce.
Pour any juices from the roasting pan into a saucepan along with the remaining reserved marinade and the chicken stock. Bring to a boil and let cook for 5 – 6 minutes or until thicken. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve the hens topped with the sauce.
