Why I Love This Recipe

Lemon and rosemary infused poussin are basted with a wine and garlic stock. Makes any occasion special. Crusty bread and a nice white wine complement this meal.


Ingredients You'll Need

4 poussin
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 lemon, quartered
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
24 cloves garlic
5 tablespoons white wine
5 tablespoons chicken stock
4 sprigs fresh rosemary, for garnish


Directions

Preheat oven to 230 C / Gas mark 8.


Rub poussin with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Place 1 lemon wedge and 1 sprig rosemary in cavity of each bird. Arrange in a large, heavy roasting tin, and arrange garlic cloves around them. Roast in preheated oven for 25 minutes.


Reduce oven temperature to 180 C / Gas mark 4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together wine, chicken stock, and remaining 2 tablespoons of oil; pour over birds. Continue roasting about 25 minutes longer, or until birds are golden brown and juices run clear. Baste with pan juices every 10 minutes.


Transfer to a platter, pouring any cavity juices into the roasting tin. Tent the birds with aluminium foil to keep warm. Transfer pan juices and garlic cloves to a medium saucepan and boil until liquids reduce to a sauce consistency, about 6 minutes. Cut them in half lengthwise and arrange on plates. Spoon sauce and garlic around the birds. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, and serve.
