Cornish Game Hens

This recipe was submitted by Marcia LaBossiere, WA
  • Watkins Recipe - Herb-Grilled Cornish Game Hens4 Cornish game hens, thawed
  • 2 fresh lemons or limes
  • Watkins Chicken Seasoning
  • Watkins Onion Granules
  • Watkins Basil
  • Watkins Garlic Granules
  • Watkins Rosemary
  • Watkins Black Pepper
Wash hens and remove all skin and fat.* Flatten hens by whacking breast bone to break. Arrange hens on broiler pan (they may also be grilled). Squeeze lemon or lime juice over hens and season with remaining ingredients. Broil close to heat for 10–12 minutes. Turn over and broil 12–15 minutes more, or until juices run clear. Makes 8 servings, 1/2 hen each.

*(Kitchen note: We tried this recipe with skin on as well as off. The birds were just as succulent and flavorful without the skins as with, so if you do not wish to eat the skin, we recommend cooking them without it to avoid removing most of the seasonings.)
