This recipe was fast, easy and packed with moist flavor. Just enough sweet and kick from the cayenne. I'm putting this on my top ten list.
Ginger-Orange Glazed Cornish Hens
When you crave roast chicken but don't have time to roast a whole bird, consider Cornish hens. The split hens cook up—juicy and succulent—in less than 45 minutes. Here, orange marmalade, spiked with ginger, makes an easy and delicious glaze. Serve with wild rice, winter squash and sauteed greens.
5 Reviews for Ginger-Orange Glazed Cornish Hens
I, too, used an apricot glaze. I "eyeballed" the other ingredients and it was terrific. I served the hens on a bed of rice pilaf cooked with broccolini and it was scrumptious. The sauce from the pan, with the orange slices and onions, were a knock-out. I'm thinking of serving this dish for Christmas dinner. Nice presentation and very easy.
LOVED IT! The recipe wasn't too time consuming, and the results were fantastic! This will definitely be added to the dinner rotation!
I used an apricot glaze consisting of 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/4 cup melted butter,
1/2 cup apricot jam, 2 Tbsp. honey, 2 Tbsp grated onion, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Combine, cook and stir till preserves are melted. Brush over hens. Bake 35-40 minutes longer or until golden and 180 . Cover and let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
Stuffing consisting of 3+ Tbsp. celery, 2 tsp. slice fresh mushroom, 2 1/2 tsp olive oil, 3 oz brown rice and 3 oz wild rice, reduced sodium chicken broth, 3 1/2 Tbsp chopped green onions, 2 1/2 tsp. reduced sodium soy sauce. 2 Cornish game hens.
