Host a SoCal-style gourmet celebration outside
San Diego Thanksgivings are often warm and mild, which means we can entertain family and friends outside. Create your own open-air living room environment—even better if your patio is on the beach.
Make it: Citrus-Glazed Cornish Game Hens
» 4 hens
» ½ an orange (quartered) per hen
» ¼ cup orange marmalade
» 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
» 2 tbsp. butter
Preheat your oven to 350°.
Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
For the glaze, melt the marmalade and Worcestershire sauce in a pan—
do not boil. Drizzle the mixture on all sides of the hens and stuff 2 slices of an orange in each.
Reserve about half the glaze. Place hens breast-side up. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
Use the rest of the glaze to baste and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
When inserted, poultry thermometer should reach 180°.
Let rest 10 minutes, and serve.
