Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

3/4 Cup(s) Apricot preserves
Orange Zest, grated
Juice of one orange
4 Cornish game hens
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Paprika
1/2 Cup(s) Cashew nuts
2 Tablespoon(s) Butter, melted
1/2 Cup(s) Scallions, sliced
6 Ounce(s) Wild rice mix
2 1/3 Cup(s) Chicken broth
Spinach leaves
Apricot roses *
Combine apricot preserves, orange rind, and orange juice; set aside.
Remove giblets from hens; reserve for other uses. Rinse hens with cold
water, and pat dry. Close cavities, and secure with wooden picks;
truss. Sprinkle with paprika and place on a rack in a lightly greased
roasting pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours, basting
frequently with about 1/2 cup apricot mixture during the last 30
minutes. Saute cashews in butter in a large skillet until cashews are
golden. Drain and set aside, reserving butter in skillet. Saute onions
in same skillet until tender. Add wild rice, and prepare according to
package directions, substituting chicken broth for water and omitting
salt. When done, stir the cashews back into the rice. Arrange Cornish
hens on serving platter; brush with remaining apricot mixture. Garnish
with apricot roses and spinach leaves, if desired, and serve with
rice. To make apricot roses, use a rolling pin to flatten 4 or 5 dried
apricots for each rose. Wrap apricots around each other, shaping them
to resemble a rose; pinch stem end to make them adhere. Source:
