2 (2 lb) Cornish hens, or about that size
Olive oil, for brushing
Kosher salt
2 cloves garlic
Italian seasoning, or your favorite
Sage sprigs

Wash hens with warm water and dry with paper towels. Cut small slits in skin. Place small slices of garlic in slits. Brush birds with olive oil. Season birds with kosher salt and with some Italian seasoning or any other seasoning you like. If you want you can add some extra herbs too. Put half sage & thyme sprigs in cavities of each bird.

Preheat Nesco (2-3 cornish hens will fit in 12 quart size) for 20 minutes at 425F. When hot, spray rack with some cooking spray. Place birds on rack, close.

Cook at 425F for 20-25 minutes per lb.

When done, place an instant read thermometer in leg area near bone. Make sure that birds read above 180F. When done, take them out and let them sit.

To serve: cut in half, place one 1/2 of a hen on a plate. Garnish with some more herb sprigs, if you wish.
