Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line the inside of a roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Place hens, breast-side up, in the prepared roasting pan.
  3. Mix 1 tablespoon garlic and herb seasoning with 1 package cream cheese in a bowl. Stuff cream cheese mixture in 1 hen. Repeat with 1 tablespoon garlic and herb seasoning and remaining 1 package cream cheese; stuff the second hen.
  4. Brush hens with melted butter; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon garlic and herb seasoning. Season with salt. Cover hens with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove aluminum foil and bake until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 15 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This recipe was super simple and had great flavor. I served with french bread as suggested and it was great with the cream cheese. I used cream cheese with 1/3 less fat and I couldn't even tell it wasn't regular cream cheese. I also used only about 6 oz of cheese in each bird as that is all that would fit. I highly suggest this recipe!

This recipe turned out great. The only thing I did different was that I was able to split an 8oz package of cream cheese between 3 game hens because I couldn't fit anymore than that inside of them. Husband said it was delicious and my kids didn't complain. My toddler even loved it.

Out of this world indeed! I marinaded the cornish hens with garlic,rosemary,salt,white wine and Kansas steak seasoning for 4 hours before cooking. Mouthwatering taste. Highly recommended.
