Roasted Cornish Hens with Wild Rice Stuffing
This recipe serves: 4  
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
3 cups cooked wild rice
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 Cornish game hens, split in half

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the dried cranberries, dried apricots, thyme and broth and cook for 2 more minutes. Stir in the cooked wild rice, salt and pepper and set aside.

3. Season the Cornish hen halves with salt and pepper.

4. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Form the stuffing into 4 mounds on the baking sheet. Place 1 half of a Cornish hen on top of each mound of stuffing. Drizzle the hens with the remaining olive oil. Roast for 45 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

5. When the hens are finished, transfer them to a serving platter and let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
