How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Remove and discard giblets and neck from hens. Rinse hens under cold water; pat dry. Split each hen in half lengthwise. Trim excess fat.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add hens; cook until hens are lightly browned on both sides, turning occasionally. Remove hens from pan. Add leek; sauté until tender.

Step 4

Place leek and hens, meaty sides up, in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Combine tomatoes and next 9 ingredients; pour over hens. Cover and bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 more minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 180°. Remove and discard bay leaf.
