Very delicious and easy to make! It is rare to find pre-baked Cornish hens, so you can do them yourself at home.

Prep Time: 40

Cook Time: 35

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: 2 hens


  • 2 Cornish game hens
  • 3 Tbsp chicken powder
  • 2 Tbsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 white onion
  • 4 stems green onion
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley
  • 3 Tbsp honey


  1. Clean hens with salt. Cut hens open with butterfly method and pat dry.
  2. Rub the hens all over with salt, pepper, sugar, chicken powder, garlic powder, thyme, and parsley. Also lift the skin of hen and rub thoroughly. Let sit for at least for one hour. The longer it is marinated, the better the flavor is.
