1 small onion, cut into 4 wedges
2 cloves garlic, cut in half
2 baking potatoes, each cut into 4 wedges
2 carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup CHI-CHI'S® 16 oz Thick & Chunky Salsa Medium
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1. Heat oven to 350ºF.
2. In 13x9-inch baking pan, place game hens. Stuff each hen with 2 wedges onion and 2 halves garlic. 3. Arrange potatoes and carrots around hens. Pour in water. Spoon salsa over hens and vegetables. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper.
