Oompa Loompa Chicken


  • 2 Cornish Game Hens
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • 2 Lemons


Heat oven to 400 deg. Separate skin from the breasts and put small to medium pats of butter under the skins. Place stems of rosemary under the skin as well. Smash the garlic and place 1-2 cloves under as well. Rub the top with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place lemon slices in the cavity of the hens along with a few cloves of the smashed garlic. Place in the oven till the skin is brown. Use a meat thermometer to tell if the chicken is done. Probably 20 minutes or so. Baste as needed.


Don’t trust the popping things that comes in your chicken or turkey. they aren’t as deep and don’t measure as well. Use a good thermometer. They are about $10-$15 for a good one and will last you a long time. Great investment. You can use this recipe for chicken breasts as well and it makes a great, healthy, cheap meal! Enjoy!!
