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.

Cornish game hens stuffed with a vegetable mixture, then roasted. A Cornish game hen recipe that I found and tweaked a bit for the taste and size of our small family, but it would be very easy to adjust it to fit your needs. It goes well with oven-roasted potatoes.

Game hens are one of our favorite meals and look really impressive for company. I've tried many different recipes and have finally found what we consider the best way to prepare them. Goes great with fresh steamed green beans and red onions or rice side such as rice pilaf or wild rice.

A mixture of garlic, parsley and olive oil is slathered under the skins of game hens, and then they're marinated overnight in fresh rosemary and white wine. Grill and serve this elegant entree to four.
