Roasted Cornish Hen
Aside from being quite an adorable protein, Cornish hens have an interesting story behind them. These birds were originally brought over to the U.S. from the Cornwall region of England and crossbred with the Plymouth Rock hen. Cornish hens can be both male or female and are harvested when immature. Enjoy this recipe as a great way to help portion control during the holidays!
