Cornish Game Hens
Preheat the oven to 350.
Stuff the onion, 1 garlic clove, and a few sage leaves inside each chicken. Truss the chicken so the legs are tied together and the wings are snug against the body. Dice the remaining 4 cloves garlic and stuff under the skin of the breast, along with the butter and a little more sage. Season the chickens generously with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with the paprika and thyme. A few lemon wedges inside the chickens and a sprinkling of something spicy, like cayenne, would be a nice touch, too.
Place on a wire rack set on a roasting pan. Roast the chickens until an instant read thermometer reads 160F, which may take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the size of the chickens.
Yields 4 servings.
