This recipe was inspired by my late grandmother who would prepare chicken this way. I didn’t have chicken but I did have a couple of Cornish game hens so I substituted those. In this recipe, Cornish game hens are slow roasted in the oven with sliced onions, soy sauce, garlic and butter. The result is tender meat with a savory sauce that is perfectly matched with some jasmine rice.

I just made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I substituted mashed potatoes for the rice though! Will definitely be making this again – thank you!

I’ve tried many different game hen recipes, but this is the easiest and BEST recipe. It will now be my go-to recipe for these little guys. Thanks!

Ooo, I have eight hens thawing in my fridge right now, and wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them (I mean, serve them, obviously, but in terms of preparation). I’ll have to bookmark this as research, thank you for sharing!!

I made this dish last night with just chicken thighs and legs. It was fantastic! My husband was licking his plate.
