Cornish Game Hens

One of the ‘perks’ of living here in Arkansas is that one can get chicken fresh in almost any form. So, I decided to make Cornish Game Hens on Saturday using my trusty grill with the rotisserie attachment. I love using this because once you get the birds on it; you can walk away and come back in an hour to the most succulent meal ever!

Anyway I decided to marinate the birdies with Olive Oil, Garlic, Oregano and Lemon. Since I was a little short on lemon, I added some Balsamic Vinegar (it’s the acid that makes the marinades work). Then I let them soak in that for about 4 hours and then put them on the grill. I made up a rice recipe to use up some left-over rice: adding onions, garlic, peppers, Rotel tomatoes and Andouile Sausage. It was good, but too spicy for my taste. I mixed in all the veggies to help tone it down a bit.

All in all it was a delicious dinner and sadly…no leftovers. Good thing we both get enough exercise or we would be like houses!
