Big, healthy dinner

First, this was not MY plate, it was my hubby’s. I didn’t eat a potato, but I did eat the rest.

This is a whole Cornish hen, and from an earlier recipe, the Thai stir-fry veggies.

I did not eat the skin either. Without the skin, a whole hen is only 460 calories.

The veggies are about 100.

The bbq sauce is also from an earlier recipe, the low-carb bbq sauce recipe.

And I was STUFFED when I was done eating!

For the hen. I bought it frozen, and thawed it in a sink of lukewarm water until it was thawed through and room temp. I did a salt/pepper/smoked paprika rub with a little olive oil.
Bake at 350 for about 50 min (check internal temp is at least 160F with a meat thermometer) and then let set for about 5 min and serve with your fav veggies. YUMMY!
