Cornish Game Hens!

Cornish game hens are a great way to take a simple and perhaps unexpected ingredient and create a gourmet meal!  Cornish game hens are basically a small chicken and are perfect to stuff with herbs and serve as is or make a great sauce.  Most of my sauces have seasonal flair, but could be served anytime of the year.  Cornish game hens generally come in a package of two and one hen will feed 2 people by cutting it in a half as shown in most of my recipes.  You can choose to take out one hen to thaw for date night or two or more for a dinner party.  I generally purchase my hens when they go on sale for $5.00 for a package of two.  This means that I can have a dinner party for four with the main entrée costing only $5.00 or a date night dinner with main entrée costing only $2.50!  Therefore I am serving a gourmet style dinner inexpensively!
