Seasoned Cornish Hens

Every year husband and I celebrate a couple of Thanksgivings, feasting twice. And that doesn't even include the leftovers. So we take some liberties at fixing non-traditional foods for the Thanksgiving meal we host at our house. This was one of those substitutions last year, where we swapped out the turkey for cornish hens. They look just like a turkey, but on a miniature scale. It was fun to switch things up and we loved the seasonings we used on the meat.

So if you're looking for something a little different this Turkey Day, maybe try some cornish hens! Happy Weekend!

  • What You'll Need
    • Cornish Hens (as many as needed; my husband ate one by himself)
    • 1 large onion, quartered
    • Garlic cloves (2 whole cloves per hen)
    • Olive oil
    • Basil
    • Thyme
    • Rosemary
    • Salt & pepper to taste

  • What You'll Do
    • Preheat the oven to 375°. 
    • Rinse and pat dry each hen. Then rub olive oil over them. 
    • Quarter the onions then stuff each quarter into a hen along with the garlic gloves (whole).
    • Season with basil, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
    • Place the hens on an aluminum-lined baking sheet and roast them for about one hour or until meat thermometer reads 165°, inserted into the thigh, and juices run clear.
    • Remove onion and garlic, then serve.
