July 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #428: Cornish Hens Good Chicken Alternative

Tip of the Week

Cornish hens are similar to chickens --- in looks and flavor. The main difference between the two is that Cornish hens are much smaller than chickens --- weighing in at just one or two pounds. Because the ratio of meat to bone is smaller, one hen per person is the preferable serving size. The bones in Cornish hens are weak, which makes it easy to split them in half before you cooking them. Roasting is the perfect method to cook these small birds, although they can be braised and sautéed as well. They can also be stuffed or glazed to add flavor.
