 Cornish hens with ginger plum stuffing

Cornish Hens with Ginger Plum Stuffing

Ingredients

  • 2 Cornish hens (about 3 pounds total)

  • 4 red plums, pitted and cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice

  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, divided

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

In a small bowl, mix plums, onion, rice, mushrooms, ginger, and 1 tablespoon soy sauce to make stuffing. Fill hens with stuffing. Baste hens with a mixture of 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon soy sauce.

Cook hens for 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 450°F. Reduce heat to 350°F and continue cooking 20 to 30 minutes more, until hens are browned and a meat thermometer registers 185°F.

Split hens, remove skin, and arrange with stuffing on 4 plates. Use pan juices as gravy.
