Cornish game hens
kosher salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
This turned out REALLY well and very juicy. I cooked it a little longer, and I used about 1/2T of chili powder and 1/2T of cumin per hen. 1/2tsp of each for 3 chickens was not nearly enough for my family. It turned out just great.
This was OK, but we prefer other seasoning compared to chili and cumin.
This recipe was the easiest chicken recipe I ever made! I was looking for something quick to prepare but low on ingredients, and this met both requirements. It's wonderfully moist and spicy and we loved it!
This was ok. DH wasn't impressed. It did come out juicy and tender, and the skin was crispy and flavorful, however the flavor did not carry into the meat. The cooking time was 45 minutes longer than what was stated, be wary if you are timing sides to be complete at the same time! We were done the baked potatoes 1/2 hr. before the chicken was done!!
Really good! Made this for my husband and he loved it....only made 2 hens and used the same amount of spices....the skin was yummy!
The title says it all. EASY EASY EASY!!! My fam enjoyed this and it was super simple to make. Good flavor!
This was my 1st time making this recipe and it was excellent!! I made it for my parents for valentines day since my husband is deployed in afghanistan. I spent V-day with my parents! It was very tasty and moist!! The only thing I did different was, I put a garlic clove inside the cavity of the hen and added more rosemary in there for extra flavor. I highly recommend this recipe!! It looks so professionally when set upon the plate!! We loved it!!
Bland recipe. I would use this as a base recipe from which to create a better one.
