  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 tel...

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 th...

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.

Loved this!! I've been making cornish hens for Valentines for so many years with the same recipe thought I'd try something different. This is the one for me ... easy, fast, and YUMMY!!!!!

I made this recipe exactly as written. It was so yummy! We had crusty french bread to dip in the cream cheese mixture and a salad. I will definitely make this again

SO good! I will definitely be making this again!

OUTSTANDING!! I've tried several game hen recipes, but all fell into the "blah" category until I found this one. It's amazing! I did find that one brick of cream cheese is plenty for two hens...

Great recipe! Amount of cream cheese recipe calls for was the right size for my cornish hens, although I found it a little thick and strong for my liking. Next time I may try baking as directed,...

I doubled this recipe to make 4 hens but otherwise followed the directions to the letter... the chicken came out fantastic but I do feel that the cream cheese sauce didnt do this dish justice......
