Ingredients:
  • 12 tablespoons schmaltz (rendered chicken fat)
  • 6 Cornish (game) hens, halved,
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 3 cups canned diced plum tomatoes, with the juices reserved
  • 3 1/2 cups dried apricots, soaked in hot water for 1 hour and drained
  • 2 cups chicken stock or water
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
Directions:

1. Heat 6 tablespoons schmaltz or peanut oil in a large saucepan. Sprinkle the hens with salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon cinnamon and brown.

2. In another saucepan heat the remaining chicken fat or peanut oil, add the onions and cook over low heat 5 minutes, or until the onions are transparent.

3. Add the remaining 3 teaspoons cinnamon and cloves and cook for about 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Add about 1/2 cup reserved tomato liquid. Puree half the soaked apricots in a food processor or blender, and coarsely chop the rest.

5. Add the pureed apricots, the diced tomatoes and 1 cup chicken stock to the onion mixture. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.

6. Puree 2 cups of the onion mixture. Return to the pan, add the remaining apricots, brown sugar and chicken stock and add enough liquid to make a medium-thick sauce.

7. In a large casserole place half the sauce. Add hens and cover with remaining sauce.

8. Bake the poultry, covered, in a 350 degree preheated oven until done, about 30 to 40 minutes.
