These Brined Cornish Hens are seriously juicy and delicious! If you’ve never brined anything before, trying it on smaller birds like these is a great way to start.Jump to Recipe
Have you ever brined anything before? I hadn’t, until I was in search of a method to make Cornish hens juicy and delicious. Ladies and gentlemen, this will take a bit more effort than just sticking the birds in the oven, but you will be rewarded with a succulent dish, not something all sad and dried out.
Before you even contemplate making this recipe, there is one thing you must do. (Cue Mission Impossible music.) You must locate a container, such as a large pot, which can amply hold two birds and still fit in the fridge. Have you got one? Then you, my friends, will have something lovely to serve during this month of lovely-food-serving. Please read all instructions before you begin.
This recipe would be lovely with AIP Mashed Potatoes and a green salad.
We’re about to deep dive folks. COURAGE!
