Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Lemon

I made these last night for dinner. They were very easy and delicious. I served them with a simple rice pilaf that baked in the oven with the hens. I also fixed a ragu of mushrooms,red peppers, and zucchini, and plain green beans for your dad.

Serves 3-4

2 cornish game hens, cut in half lengthwise
3 fat cloves of garlic, chopped fine
1/2 onion, cut in quarters
1 lemon, rind & juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Place hens in a plastic ziplock bag and add all remaining ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 and dump hens & all the marinade into a roasting pan. Arrange hens skin side up. Roast for about 40 minutes, uncovered.
