My father taught me how to make this quick and easy dinner for four. We usually eat this dish with rice and steamed green beans. Note: You can get the oyster sauce in this recipe at your local grocery store in the Asian food department.

There is no question in my mind, marinating for at least 24 hours makes a barbeque! I don't cook chicken until it's bone dry! Marinating makes the flavor.

Chicken Little (Semi-Boneless Roast Game Hen)

Rating: 3.67 stars
3

Armed with nothing more than a sharp boning knife, and some patience, pretty much anyone can make this visually impressive 'chicken little,' or as they say in the biz, 'individual chicken ballotine.' Since there is a bit of production involved, I do suggest making these ahead, and keeping them in the fridge until you're ready to serve.
