Cornish Game Hen
A small broiler/fryer that is less than 30 days old and weighs 1-1/2 to 2 pounds.
Cornish hens bake up with a lovely golden brown shine when they are basted with my sweet and tangy glaze. The traditional rice stuffing has some added interest with crunchy pecans and sweet golden raisins.—Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario
These golden Cornish hens, shown at right, are seasoned with basil, sage and thyme for plenty of flavor. They're simple to prepare yet make any occasion seem special. For a fast finish, serve corn bread stuffing and chunky cinnamon applesauce...or roasted cubed potatoes with pepper and carrots plus instant chocolate pudding for dessert.
“These hens taste wonderful. They’re just the right thing to serve when you’re having company over. Your guest will think you spent the whole day in the kitchen!” Kara de la Vega - Santa Rosa, CA
