      Title: Roast cornish game hens stuffed with two basi
 Categories: Poultry
      Yield: 2 Servings
 
      1 c  Opal basil leaves, fresh
      1 c  Sweet basil leaves, fresh
      1    Orange; zest & juice only
      2    Cornish game hens
           Olive oil; for rubbing
           Black pepper
 
  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  
  Chop the basils coarsely. Rinse hens and pat dry.
  
  In a bowl, combine the basils, orange zest, and orange juice; mix
  well. Tightly pack the basil mixture inside the cavity of each hen.
  Tie the legs together with kitchen twine and tuck the wings under.
  Rub the hens with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper. Place,
  breast side up, on a roasting rack set inside a lightly greased
  roasting pan.
  
  Roast for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and rotate the hens so
  that the breasts face down. Roast for 30 minutes longer. To check for
  doneness, prick the under side of the thighs with a sharp fork; if
  the juices run clear, the hens are done. Remove from the oven and let
  stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.
