Cornish Hen

This Cornish Hen recipe made a fun evening for my wife and me. We only had one cornish game hen, so we needed a way to make it a meal for two. So here we go, Cornish Hen For Two! Poultry perfection!

Cornish Hen

 Cornish Hen
 1 18 oz. bottle Country Bob’s Marinade
 1 tbsp Country Bob’s Seasoning Salt
 1 onion, chopped
 Red bell pepper, chopped
 1 garlic clove, minced
 broccoli florets
 3 medium potatoes, thinly sliced

Thaw the hen overnight in refrigerator.


Remove hen from package and wash thoroughly.


Place hen in marinade for about an hour. Flatten out the hen.


Insert garlic and a few pieces of onion inside the hen.


Use a small rack to elevate cornish hen on grill.
Place some wood chips on grill and allow hen to cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes.


Place potatoes in aluminum foil. Baste with All Purpose Sauce. Add Seasoning Salt. Place Onions in aluminum foil and allow to cook.


Turn grill to medium high heat. Flip hen over on to grill and allow to sear. Baste with All Purpose Sauce and Marinade mix often.


Continue to cook until hen comes to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. (treat it just like you would chicken, because that’s what it is!)


Drop broccoli into boiling water for two minutes. Alternatively you can use a steamer bowl and microwave. Rinse with water prior to adding to grill.


Add bell pepper and broccoli to grill. Be careful as they will burn easily. You just want them to heat up and get some of that grill flavor.
