Ingredients

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


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.

Notes

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.

A dash of local for every season
