“Lindsay® Black Ripe Olives pair with sweet dried cranberries and sharp blue cheese for a delicious variation on an average brown rice stuffing.” - by Lindsay® Olives
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine rice, olives, pine nuts, cranberries, celery and cheese; mix well.
- Rinse hens in cold water; pat dry with paper towels. Fill cavities with rice mixture; close and secure with wooden picks. Place hens in a shallow roasting pan or large casserole dish. Brush butter over hens; top with garlic powder and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Drizzle orange juice evenly over hens. Bake until hens are golden brown and juices run clear, about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

"I omitted the olives and O.J. Instead try some chestnuts, more walnuts, cranberries, or some chopped pear. The pears, blue cheese, and walnuts are great together. Stunning entree with a roasted pea..." See morer on the side."
"My mom and I had a fun dinner for just the two of us and I made this recipe. We both loved it. I don't make the Cornish hens as often as I make the rice stuffing. I love this stuffing as a side dish! ..." See moreThanks for the recipe!"
