These cornish game hens have had their breast bones and spine removed for easier cooking.  Their leg, thigh, and wing bones have been left intact for a better presentation.

Cornish game hens (aka Cornish hens, rock Cornish hens) are a special variety of young chicken that has been bred to be the perfect single-serving size. Juicy and tender, they also tend to be more plump than conventional chickens. Chefs love Cornish hens because they're easy to roast, and don't tend to dry out.

Store cornish game hens frozen until you need them, then defrost completely before cooking.

Thawing Tips

Cornish hens are almost always roasted and served whole.  Each Cornish game hen will provide a single, hearty serving.

Partially deboned game hens are particularly well suited to stuffing.  As always when stuffing poultry, use a probe thermometer to check the center of the stuffing’s temperature after cooking to ensure that it has reached a safe 165 degrees.

Cornish rock hens pair well with most ingredients commonly used with chicken.  In particular, chefs favor savory spices somewhat similar to those paired with squab, such as cumin, turmeric, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, paprika and green cardamom.

Without the breast bones or spine, semi-boneless Cornish hens are particularly easy to split down the middle.  Doing so will dramatically reduce their cooking time.
