This episode features Cornish game hens, which are a special variety of fowl that are much like chicken, but are the right size for dinners for two. On the side there is wild rice pilaf and asparagus.
As far as flavor goes, they offer a pleasing, slightly gamey departure from chicken. Usually game hens are found in the frozen section of the store. Whatever works with chicken will work with game hens, and vice versa. The appeal of the game hen is that it is like an individual whole chicken Inspired by simple, traditional flavors.
