Herb Crusted Cornish Game Hen Recipe

A little hen with alot of flavor! Darn it was so tender the wings fell off!

2 Cornish Game Hens
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon each salt, pepper and paprika
1 stick melted butter
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon for each hen minced garlic in olive oil
ziplock bag
Roasting pan with rack
2 celery stalks

Rinse the game hen under water. Melt butter in a pie plate. Roll each hen in butter.  In a extra large ziplock bag add the cup of flour with 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and paprika. Shake the hens in the flour one at a time. In the cavity add the minced garlic and 1 stalk of celery and any leftover melted butter.
Bake at 350 degree preheated oven on a roasting rack. Add on the bottom of the pan,  water 1/2 inch deep.  Tent loosely with aluminum foil.  Remove foil after 1/2 hour of cooking.
Cook until the skin is brown and crispy around 45 minutes more or until the juices run clear.
