  • Summary

    Instead of the usual roast chicken, why not give game hen the oven treatment? It cooks way faster, and the pan juices make a delicious sauce when combined with Dijon, lemon juice, capers, and fresh tarragon.

    Ingredients

    • 1 Cornish game hen (1 3/4 pounds), trimmed of excess fat
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 3 medium carrots, peeled and quartered lengthwise
    • 1/2 small celery root, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch matchsticks
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, plus more for serving
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 2 teaspoons capers in brine, drained and coarsely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves
