Cornish Hens with Rice Dressing

Cornish Hens with Rice Dressing

"THIS IS a perfect main dish when you're cooking for two. I've even used these hens as a stand-in for turkey on Thanksgiving Day when the group was not large. I found this recipe among my mother's collection. She was always searching newspapers and magazines for new cooking ideas. --Geraldine Grisdale Mt. Pleasant, Michigan"

There is an error in the length of time you must bake them. If you bake 2 hens, the time stated is accurate. However, when you double the recipe, you, also, have to add more baking time.

Not really sure what to say about this. The chicken turned out ok - very moist, but I did add in some more spices per other reviews. I also baked it uncovered for almost an additional 45 minut...
