Makes 4 servings

2 Cornish game hens
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup paprika
4 tablespoons crushed, dried oregano
4 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 small boxes of raisins, chopped
6 dried apricot halves, chopped
1 1/3 cups white rice, uncooked
2 14-1/2 ounce cans fat-free chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rub oil over the outside of the hens. In a small bowl, combine the paprika, oregano, chili powder, mustard, raisins, apricots, rice, and broth. Place each hen in the middle of a piece of 1 1/2-foot square piece of foil. Fold up the top and sides but do not close the packet. Add half of the rice mixture to each packet, spooning the rice around the bottom of each hen. Fold all edges of the packets tightly so the liquid and steam will not escape. Alternatively, add the hens and rice mixture to commercially available oven bags, such as Reynolds brand oven bags. Close the cooking bags with twist ties. Snip three or four tiny holes in the top of each bag (this will keep steam in the bags but prevent the bags from popping). Place the foil packets or oven bags in a large casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes.
