“This is a favorite recipe from my mom. I use it when I want to make a good impression! It makes for a simple but elegant dinner, very flavorful.” - by Angela
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Lightly season hens with salt and black pepper to taste.
- Mix rice, almonds, green onion, and 1/4 cup butter together in a saucepan over low heat; cook and stir until rice is lightly toasted, about 10 minutes. Add water, chicken bouillon, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice is cooked and water is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir parsley into rice mixture.
- Stuff the cavity of each hen with rice mixture; truss the hens by securing the legs together with kitchen string. Place hens breast-side up in a shallow pan; loosely cover the pan with tented aluminum foil.
- Roast hens in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
- Mix currant jelly, Burgundy wine, 2 tablespoons butter, lemon juice, cornstarch, Worcestershire sauce, and allspice together in a saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until glaze is smooth and thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
- Uncover hens and brush with Burgundy glaze; continue roasting for 1 hour, brushing frequently with glaze. Drumsticks with move easily in sockets when done. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone of the hens and in the center of the stuffing should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer hens to a hot platter and serve with remaining glaze.

"Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I used to make a recipe very similar to this one that was from a Southern Living Annual Recipes cookbook - don't remember which year. I no longer have the co..." See moreokbook and was so happy to find this. I made it for Christmas Eve Dinner this year. My five and three year old sons LOVED having their own "mini-turkeys" for dinner! Recipe is delicious and surprisingly little-kid friendly."
