Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 Cornish hens 
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt 
  • Pink Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1 cup chicken stock 
  • 1 large onion, diced 

Directions

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat; coat with the olive oil. Season the hens with the poultry seasoning, seasoning salt and 1/2 teaspoon each Himalayan salt and pepper. Place, breast-side down, in the Dutch oven and cook until golden brown, 3 minutes. Turn and cook until golden brown on the reverse side, another 2 minutes.

Turn the heat down to the lowest setting and add the chicken stock and onions. Cover and cook the Cornish hens slowly until their juices run clear, 45 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid for the Don't Block the Blessing Dressing.
