Having our traditional servings for the holidays is fantastic! however, if you feel that you want to serve something different, then here is the perfect recipe for you, a Roast Goose/Hen created by Elegant Affairs Caterers, a flavorful and an easy meal to put together which your family and friends will love.
( 2 servings)
- 2 Cornish hens
- Kosher salt, to taste
- Ground pepper, to taste
- 1-1/2 cups pomegranate juice
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons molasses
Pre-heat your oven to 350F degrees.
Clean Cornish hens, blot with paper towels to remove excess moisture and add to a Pyrex dish.
Sprinkle the skin with a generous amount of kosher salt and pepper.
In a small to medium-sized high sided non-stick skillet add pomegranate juice, vinegar, and molasses. Gently whisk together and simmer over medium-low heat. Mix it continuously until it’s the consistency of honey. Watch it, it can burn easily.
Add the Hens to the oven and cook for about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and glaze with pomegranate/vinegar/molasses mixture. Add back to the oven, cook for 15 minutes more and glaze once again. Glaze one final time after another 15 minutes.
Remove the Cornish hens from the oven. Internal temperature should be 165 degrees
