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

  1. 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.
