Top Rated Cornish Game Hen Recipes

Roasted Cornish Game Hens
While many people might not be familiar with cornish game hens (aka young chickens), I actually grew up eating them. A lot of them. This particular dish is a riff on something my mother made that we referred to as "Chicken with Greens" because of the heavy dousing of oregano on top. All in all, this dish is incredibly easy to make. I chose to use whole pearl onions and shallots instead of opting for fingerlings or other potatoes, but you can choose that route if you prefer. A less lazy cook than I would peel the onions, but I had just taken a kick-your-booty kind of class at the gym and wasn't sure how much longer I'd be able to stand up for. So, I simply rubbed them to remove any excess skin and placed them in the roasting pan as is (and they came out spectacularly). I particularly love whole roasted onions and shallots (much like roasted garlic) because they completely break down and become ultra creamy and soft. You can also toss a garlic head in the pan as well if you'd like, just lop off the top and drizzle with some olive oil.  Click here to see Cozy Winter Meals.

For a luscious poultry treat, smoked Cornish game hens can't be beat. These little birds are richly flavored, juicy and smoke like a charm. In my opinion, a smoked game hen beats smoked chicken every time. To add flavor, the game hens are marinated in a basic brine containing apple juice, herbs and spices. Slow smoking with apple, cherry or peach wood gives these little birds a light smoky flavor. If you are a fan of smoked poultry, these smoked Cornish game hens will be something to cheer about. Juicy, tender and full of flavor, they will become an all time favorite.
