Prep   -   (15 min plus thaw time)
  1. Preheat Oven to 350°F/177°C.
  2. Thaw GAME HEN and cut in half lengthwise with your kitchen shears. One side can get the spine, the other the breastbone for even size, or one can get both to make one a little larger than the other.
  3. Crush GARLIC, slice and chop very fine. Mix together All Items (except hen).
  4. Arrange Hen skin side up in a baking dish,or casserole and pour the baste over. Coat evenly using a basting brush. Slide into the preheated oven.
Run   -   (45 min)
  1. Roast for about 45 minutes basting (with the brush) every 10 minutes.
  2. Serve hot.
NOTES:
  1. Game Hen:   These weigh between 1 and 2 pounds, To serve two you need one at the high end. If frozen, you'll lose about 1-1/2 ounces when thawed (they have ice inside). For details See our Chicken Page.
  2. Olive Oil:   This will be a low temperature process, so you can use Virgin or Pure olive oil, depending on the amount of olive oil flavor you like.
  3. Chili Powder:   Choose the hotness you prefer. I use Korean, which is medium hot. For details see our Chili Page.
  4. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
