Truss the Hens– Tuck the wings under the hen and use kitchen twine to tie the legs together. That helps the hens roast evenly and present well. No worries, if you don’t have any on hand, it won’t affect the taste. So you might ask, what are the advantages?

That’s why I love serving glazed carrots with my Cornish hens. And while a Cornish hen can only feed one hungry human, if you serve it with sides, it’s perfect for an intimate dinner for two. What’s great about it though is that since it’s smaller, it can easily absorb flavor.

This will avoid the guesswork, over/under cooking, or slicing into the hens to check and losing all those juices. I like to cut them in half after they’ve rested and serve each person half a hen. Cornish hens are fully matured at the smaller weight and the meat is super tender.

  • Cook them until instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads at least 165F.
  • For many people, it wouldn’t be Christmas (or name another holiday!) without Cornish hens on the menu.
  • It makes for a nice presentation for dinner.

Try hybrid cooking methods to get the most out of the hen without drying the meat. A great way to do this would be to first cook the hens for about 35 minutes at 400°F and then continue cooking in a pan at high heat to get a good sear and caramelization on the skin. For the best and safest results, be sure your little hens are completely thawed before roasting. Refrigerator thawing is the most highly recommended method.

Do cornish hens taste different than chicken?

Cut in half, then serve with pan drippings. Bake for approximately minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F. The cook time may vary a bit depending on the size of your birds.

Our recipe calls for just a little salt, pepper and garlic powder and a finishing glaze of honey and fresh lemon juice. It’s easy, quick and goes great with classic summer sides like fresh corn and a green salad. These look awesome and I love the moroccan rub. We used culinary scissors to split our Cornish game hens, but you can also use a sharp knife. The bones are easier to cut than a full-grown chicken.
