Whether you're inviting company over for the holidays, or want to treat yourself and a few guests to a fancy dinner dish, our recipe for Apricot Glazed Cornish Hens is the way to go. We add great flavor and tastes to these Cornish Hens with just a few simple ingredients, so you can impress without the mess!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 orange, quartered
  • 4 Cornish hens
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a roasting pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place an orange quarter into cavity of each Cornish hen and place them in pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, combine preserves and brown sugar; pour mixture over hens. Roast, uncovered, 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours, or until no pink remains and juices run clear, basting every 20 minutes. Serve whole or cut each hen in half, and serve with additional glaze from pan spooned over the top.

Sprinkle with a few sliced toasted almonds and serve with our awesome Glazed Baby Carrots.
