The Grilled Spring Chicken with Blood Orange and Rosemary Polka Perfect for Weddings!
Anyway, this video is a recipe for the game hen (aka Spring Chicken) I posted a picture of a few weeks ago. It was so delicious and beautiful I promised to film it the next time I made it, and I did. The key ingredient here is the erotic, exotic blood orange. Theyre Spanish in origin I believe, and add a wonderful sweet/tart flavor thats just perfect with the spicy chili sauce and aromatic rosemary.
I know what youre thinking, "this jerk just used another ingredient I cant buy where I live!" "So much for that $1,000 donation I was just about to send him…now Im sending it to Ralph Nader instead." Hey, I don’t blame you. Im sure its frustrating trying to find some of the stuff I use. Sometimes I even make up fake ingredients to mess with you. But, when it comes to the blood orange, there is a solution.
Some dude named Jeff, suggested in a comment on the Game Recognize Game Hen post, that blood orange juice could be simulated with regular orange and a splash of pomegranate juice. Brilliant! In fact, it may be even better. Give this a try, and enjoy!
2 game hens
