Ingredients

BULGUR PILAF

SPICY ORANGE SALSA

Directions

  1. Place the hens in a large glass bowl. In a blender, puree the garlic, onion, salt, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, orange juice, tangerine juice, and olive oil. Pour the puree over the hens and marinate for a minimum of 4 hours at room temperature, or in the refrigerator, overnight. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the hens in a greased baking dish and spoon the marinade over them. Bake for about 1/2 hour, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Continue baking, basting occasionally, for another 1/2 hour or until crispy. Remove the hens from the oven and cover with foil. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  2. Serve with bulgur pilaf and spicy orange salsa.

BULGUR PILAF

  1. Combine the bulgur and water in a bowl and set aside until reconstituted, about 10 minutes. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan, over a medium high heat. Saute the onion until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the vermicelli and pine nuts and saute until golden. Stir in the reconstituted bulgur, chicken stock, salt, and pepper.
  2. Reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, about 10 minutes.
