My mom was a nurse and had four children to feed; we ate the same recipes over and over, probably because she was busy and she was feeding 6 people. I get bored with recipes easily, and I’m sure that’s the reason why. I rarely make the same thing more than once in a month; I also think that’s why my son isn’t a picky eater. I really enjoy making Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens. I created this Honey Orange Cornish Hens recipe to spice up our monthly meal plan. They’re relatively easy to make, and they look so fancy! did I mention they’re tasty too?
I found these Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens in the freezer section of my local Kroger. Most of the other items needed for the recipe can be found in your fridge or pantry.
Tip: The hens require 24-48 hours to thaw in the fridge.
When the hens are thawed completely, I rinse them well and pat them dry.
