Cornish Game Hen with Couscous

  • 02.04.13

Happy February everyone!!  It has been a long month since I sat down and wrote about our nightly dinners.  We had had plenty of dinner, just time has not been in my favor and with each passing day, another day went by that I did not write. I really miss it.

Last night dinner was easy and fast.  Cornish hens are one of my favorite go to meal .  Easy to prepare, fast to cook in the oven, but the best part, one Cornish hen split in half, is a perfect one person serving. We had Israeli couscous with Porcini Mushrooms by Roland as a side dish. Israeli couscous is also known as “Pearl Couscous” is made with wheat flour and toasted in special ovens.  The grains are much larger than the regular couscous, and have a bit of a chewy texture. 

Steamed broccolis, vegetable of choice of my son.

Bon Appetit!!


Tonight’s February 3, 2013 dinner:

Roasted Cornish Hen

Porcini Mushrooms Couscous

Steamed Broccoli



Salt and pepper

Herbs de Province

Olive oil

Preheat the oven at 375°. Line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the cleaned and cut in half Cornish hen over it. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper and Herbs de Province.

Place in the hot oven for 45 minutes, poking the meat once in a while to make sure all the juices are running.
