Main Dish (Game Hens with Brussels Sprouts & Chestnuts)
- 4 (1 to 1½ pound each) Cornish Game Hens

- In a large roasting pan, set over a medium flame, heat the butter and olive oil. Spread the game hens lightly over this pan and keep turning them occasionally, for around 10 to 12 minutes, till all the sides are nice and brown.
