Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425. In a small saucepan bring 1 cup of water to boil. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes to blanch.
  2. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid, drain the tomatoes. Place the reserved cooking liquid in a medium bowl. When cool enough to handle, coarsely chop the sun-dried tomatoes and add them to the bowl.
  3. Add the mint, olives, raisins, garlic, lemon zest, and salt to the sun-dried tomatoes, stirring to combine. Using your fingers, carefully lift the game hens’ breast skin and as much of the thigh skin as you can without tearing it.
  4. Place ¼ of the stuffing mixture under the skin of each hen half.
  5. Place the hens, skin side up, on a rack in a roasting pan, and roast for 25 minutes or until they are cooked through. Remove the skin before eating.
