Oven roasted Cornish hens

 
In the spirit of thanksgiving I was going to roast a turkey, but I don't really like turkey that much, so I chose a Cornish hen instead. I'm going to try to cook thanksgiving dishes for the next 2 weeks so people can have paleo options to bring to their family thanksgiving meal. If you have any suggestions, or dishes you don't want to try to make paleo, email me and I will try them for you (nothing too difficult please). For the hens you will need: 2 small Cornish game hens, 4 tablespoons olive oil, Salt and pepper, Garlic powder, 2 cloves garlic, 1 onion, chopped, 1 bag of mini carrots, 2 sweet potatoes, sliced. Preheat oven to 450. Place hens on a large baking sheet. Drizzle hens with olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and Toni's seasoning. Rub the garlic over the top of hens also.Place onion, carrots and sliced potatoes around hens and toss them in olive oil as well and then season them with salt and pepper. Bake at 450 for 25 minutes and then at 350 for 25 more minutes.

    Just wanted to tell you I tried this for thanksgiving and it was amazing. It had to be one of the easiest dishes that I have cooked up, that tasted so great.

    I am going to try this in the crock pot and use whole carrots (I’m not trying to be nit-picky but I did hear that baby carrots are whole carrots chopped into smaller pieces and then bathed in a bleach solution, which is why they get slimy in the bag over time.

    At any rate.. I am going to try this in the crock pot. I love your site, and I’m excited to be staring paleo!! Thanks for all the wonderful resources! :-)
