Easy Citrus infused cornish game hen recipe

One habit that I have managed to keep is having at least one sit down dinner a week. It is very easy to grab your plate and eat in front of the TV but conversation goes out the window that way. Last Sunday I was pretty happy with the way my citrus infused Cornish game hen came out and eating it by the couch would not do it justice. I made some green beans, garlic sweet potato mash to go with it and dinner was a success. 
1 Cornish game hen
zest from 1 small orange
2 tbsp butter
1 handful fresh parsley
1 spring fresh rosemary 
2 sprigs fresh thyme
3 cloves fresh garlic
olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
– Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
– Pat game hen with a paper towel to remove moisture and cut the hen in half. 
– Mix butter, herbs and garlic in a food processor until herbs are minced and butter is soft. 
– Separate skin from meat and season hen generously with salt and pepper then place herb mixture under the skin.
– Drizzle the skin with olive oil and place in the oven. 
– Cook until juices run clear about 1 hour.
