Ingredients
2 PERDUE® Fresh Whole Cornish Hens, Twin Pack
2 lemons
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons dry white wine
8 ounces spaghetti (1/2 box)
2 medium-size crowns fresh broccoli
8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup capers
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Instructions
1 Split hens in half lengthwise. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Cut ends off lemons; discard ends. Cut each lemon into four slices.
2 On baking sheet, rest each split hen on two lemon slices. Pour 1/2 cup wine over hens and bake for 45 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reaches 170°F.
3 About 10 minutes before hens are done, prepare spaghetti according to package directions and steam broccoli until crisp tender.
4 In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice, remaining 3 tablespoons of wine and capers.
5 Remove chicken from oven, and serve with spaghetti and broccoli. Pour butter sauce over all.
