Categories: Hot



Place the hens in a large glass bowl. In a blender, puree the garlic, onion, salt, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, orange juice, tangerine juice, and olive oil. Pour the puree over the hens and marinate for a minimum of 4 hours at room temperature, or in the refrigerator, overnight. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the hens in a greased baking dish and spoon the marinade over them. Bake for about 1/2 hour, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Continue baking, basting occasionally, for another 1/2 hour or until crispy. Remove the hens from the oven and cover with foil. Set aside for 20 minutes. Serve with bulgur pilaf and spicy orange salsa. Yield: 6 servings TOO HOT TAMALES SHOW #TH6283
