Steamed Cornish Hens

4 Cornish hens (thawed)
4 large squares of foil
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter or margarine (melted)

Season each hen with thyme, salt and lemon pepper, and wrap securely in the foil. Put the hens on a baking sheet and cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Remove hens and raise heat to 450 degrees. Open the foil very carefully due to escaping steam and completely uncover each hen. Then brush each one with melted butter and return to oven for 10-15 minutes or until brown.

    Man, this sounds like a great way to do cornish hens. I've done chicken breasts before like this, but never thought of doing the little birds this way too. Can't wait to try this one this week.
