  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir together garlic, parsley, thyme, sage, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Loosen the breast skin on each hen. Spread about 1 tbsp. herb mixture under skin of each hen. Rub remaining herb mixture over outside of each hen. Transfer hens to a large baking dish. Roast 20 minutes, basting twice. Reduce oven to 300 degrees and roast hens an additional 15 to 20 minutes, basting occasionally, until juices run clear. Transfer hens to plates and drizzle with lemon juice. Cover hens loosely with foil and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
