Lemon Rosemary Cornish Game Hens

Roasted In The Oven Or On A BBQ ~ They Are Perfect!

If you have never tried Cornish Game Hens then you are in for a treat! I love them so much more than chicken. The flavor is FANTASTIC! Experiment with your favorite spices to see what you like best. This is an excellent recipe to make mid-week because it is so easy, yet the taste is elegant enough to serve to company.

Prep Time:

10 minutes

Cook Time:

Approximately 50 minutes or until meat thermometer = 165

Serving Size:



Note: Always presume all ingredients listed are organic


  • 4 organic free-range Cornish game hens, rinsed well and patted dry

  • 2 lemons cut in half

  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil melted

  • Celtic sea salt

  • Dried Rosemary

Note: Always presume all ingredients listed are organic and/or as natural as can be (GMO, hormone and pesticide free).

Note: It's easy to get confused when reading food labels today. To save you research time and frustration, I have linked as often as possible to my favorite brands. These same products and 1000's more can be found HERE. My favorite non-toxic kitchen equipment is also linked below, as well as many more HERE.

Kitchen Tools:


  1. If using an oven, Preheat oven to Roast 375⁰F

  2. Place the game hens in a large roasting pan, breast side up

  3. Put a half lemon inside each hen

  4. Brush each game hen with coconut oil with the baster

  5. Sprinkle the salt and rosemary all over each hen

  6. Place in the oven and roast for approximately 50 minutes, or until the internal temperature using a meat thermometer is 165⁰. The game hens will be a beautiful golden brown when they are done.

  7. There’s a lot of meat on the hens, so for smaller eaters they can be split in half to serve two people per hen.

  8. Leftovers are wonderful on a salad to make another meal in itself. In fact, we usually try to make extra so we don’t have to cook the next night.



*If you are using a BBQ, roast over medium heat

*If using a crockpot, start the pot on high, but then drop the temperature down to low after an hour, cooking for approximately 3-4 hours more. The meat will fall off the bone and have a lot more moisture to it.

Allergy/Health Information:

Organic game hens are a lean source of protein.  A good rule of thumb is to vary your foods in order to obtain a variety of nutrients from a multitude of sources.
