I made Cornish game hens for dinner last night over a bed of wild rice.  It's a delicious meal that is really quite simple to make. One step that cannot be overlooked is the "Dancing of the Hens".

  • I always dance my hens before I rub them in melted butter, garlic, cracked pepper and a little Lawry's Seasoning Salt.  I like to do a chorus line dance to "New York, New York"...And kick and turn.
  • The oven is set at 350 degrees. I cook the hens in a cooking bag for just over an hour depending on the weight of the hen.
  • I always cooked wild rice with my Cornish game hens.  You can stick the rice in the bag after you cook it, but I usually don't.

It's really so simple that it is almost embarrassing. I always ask my wife, "Why don't we do this more often?"  They are simply delicious.
