Cranberry Apple Cornish Hen on plateAdding a sweet and sour element to savoury roasted Cornish game hens is divine! Stuffing them with fresh cranberries and chopped apples gives them great flavour and also makes them extra juicy. It also makes a lovely presentation at the table.

  5. Place hens in a baking pan and drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Roast for about 1 hour, until exterior is browned and crisp. I pulled mine at about 170F when thermometer was inserted into the thigh.

  7. I use instant wild rice as it always comes out perfect (and it's so fast). Cook and mix with the reserved 2 tablespoons of chopped apple. Stir in slivered almonds.
