2 cups Swanson® Chicken Stock (Regular or Unsalted)
1 cup champagne or other sparkling wine
1/2 cup black truffle juice
1 large leek, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 stalks celery, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 large carrot, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh lemon thyme leaves
1 Cornish game hen (about 1 1/2 pounds) or poussin (baby chicken)
2 artichoke heart, cooked and sliced (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup diced cooked potato
2 green onion, diagonally sliced (about 1/4 cup)
6 cloves roasted garlic
1 tablespoon unsalted butter




Heat the stock, champagne, truffle juice, leek, celery, carrot, garlic and thyme in an oven-safe 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the hen to the saucepan and heat to a boil. Place the saucepan in the oven.
Bake at 350°F. for 45 minutes or until the hen is cooked through. Remove the hen from the saucepan and keep warm.
Place the stock mixture into a blender or food processor.  Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour the stock mixture through a sieve into the saucepan.  Cook over medium-high heat until the mixture is reduced slightly.
Stir the artichokes, potato, green onions, roasted garlic and butter in the saucepan and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
Cut the hen in half lengthwise.  Place each half into a deep bowl. Spoon the vegetables and sauce over the hen halves.
