Brown Sugar Cornish Hens & Corn Bread Dressing



One thing about me, the Corn Bread Dressing and (Juicy) Turkey MUST be the star of my Thanksgiving plate!


For Day 5 of our Thanksgiving Countdown, I’m switching things up and making my Brown Sugar Cornish Hens with my go-to Corn Bread Dressing Recipe (I’m never straying away from this recipe 😅


Brown Sugar Cornish Hens:

SERVES 2-4

2 Cornish Hens, giblets removed

2 tablespoons chopped assorted herbs (sage, rosemary, and thyme)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Place butter and chopped herbs into a small bowl and heat in the microwave until melted.

4. Using a few pieces of paper towel, pat the outside and inside of the cornish hens dry.

5. Sprinkle the spice mix onto the cornish hen's skin and cavity. Place into a baking dish or roasting pan.

6. Drizzle melted butter and herbs over the cornish hens and roast, uncovered for 45- 50minutes or until the thickest part of the breast reads 165F on a thermometer.

7. Remove from the oven and rest for 15-20 minutes before cutting in.
