There is something I love about fall, the cooler weather and the holiday season in the air that makes you want to eat hearty, succulent meals. My number one favorite? Roasted meats with potatoes, veggies and a glass of red wine always hits the spot when it’s cold outside.
This week I visited Sam’s Club (because I looove their holiday stuff) and I came across the Tyson® All Natural Premium Cornish Hens 6 pack in the freezer section. Immediately I knew just what to make for my next Sunday dinner. There’s an extra instant savings to cash in too – $3.75 off during the holiday season (10/26-11/20) Offer is unlimited!
Of course, I can’t leave Sam’s Club without checking out the amazing wine section. With the holidays coming, I like to keep a few bottles on hand because they make wonderful affordable gifts for neighbors, co-workers and teachers. I picked up a bottle of Ravage Cabernet Sauvignon.
Sunday dinners are a special thing for our family – it’s our time to be together in the face of the health challenges my husband faces. Making sure we eat carefully planned meals are one of the most important things I need to watch out for.
Preparation was much easier than you think – anybody can pull this together! All I did was preheat the oven to 350F and rubbed each Cornish hen with butter. I placed them in a baking pan and filled it with 1 cup of chicken stock, carrots, celery and onions. Then I seasoned each hen with herb seasoning, salt & pepper and let it roast for a good 90 minutes.
While that cooked, I also prepared some easy mashed potatoes, green beans and creamed corn as sides… Little chef’s secret – I used instant potatoes and green beans and corn are canned!
When it comes out of the oven, it’s important to let the hens rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into them to help those yummy juices redistribute into the meat.
The leftover juices in the pan are transferred out to a pan to create a gravy. Simply add a little bit of flour and whisk it around until it thickens. Oh yes – you can even add a drop of wine if you’re feeling daring.. Or just drink up in a glass!
Serve up and enjoy!
