Here goes...How I make one of our favorite meals.
Stuffed Cornish Hens
I make my own bread crumbs - easy to do and a great way to use old bread
Cut up bread - place on a cooking sheet - I use my Calphalon Pizza Pan (it is the best pizza pan we have ever owned)
Bake the bread cubes for 9 minutes at 425 degrees
I then mix bread crumbs - chicken stock - mushrooms and spices. I recommend you add the spices to your taste. Here are the spices I use. Spice to taste. The Onion Crunch adds a sweet onion taste!
Cornish Hens:Place the washed Cornish Hens in a baking dish. Stuff with dressing - top with butter and I sprinkled Italian Seasoning on ours.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour - then I cover with aluminum foil - I like Reynolds Non-Stick Wrap to ensure that the hens do not get too brown. I check the hens about every 30 minutes - pasting using the juices from the hens. I use a cooking thermometer to ensure that they are at least 165 degrees at the thickest part of the hen. I cooked these hens for 1 hour & 45 minutes - they temped at 176 degrees. DELICIOUS meal!!! I served with Chicken Gravy and Italian Green Beans!
