This recipe combines long grain rice mix ,vegetables, and cream of mushroom soup to stuff cornish game hens. I got this recipe from a "make it from a mix" pamphlet, and was surprised by how good this Thanksgiving, but easy enough to do everyday!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the rice according to package directions.
  2. In a small skillet, saute celery and onion in 1 tbsp butter until tender. Stir in the soup, mushrooms and prepared rice.
  3. Sprinkle the inside and outside of the game hens with salt and pepper. Stuff with the rice mixture. Place on a rack in a greased shallow roasting pan; cover with foil.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove the foil. Melt the remaining butter; brush over the hens. Bake 25-35 minutes longer or until the juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees for the hens and 165 degrees for the stuffing.

Yummy! Great comfort food. I used a brown and wild rice mix, fresh mushrooms sauteed for a few minutes, and 1 Cornish hen. Excellent dinner served with some baby carrots. Easy, moist and delicious. Thanks breezer for yet another keeper. Made for 123 Tag.

I haven't fixed Cornish Hens for a long time, and wow, do we love these little babes! I only fixed two, becuase it's just me and hubby now that all the kids have left, but this is comfort food at it's best! I didn't salt and pepper the inside of the birds, because I stuffed them with a rice mix that already contained seasoning, since it was in the pantry and I needed to use it up. We loved the creaminess the soup gave it! (I used the 98% fat free Healthy Request.) I made this for ZWT6, but I will be making this recipe again!

I have a incurable case of 'chickenlepsy'. It's described as having a great love for chicken or as in this case, cornish hens stuffed with wild rice dressing. Made for POTLUCK Tag.
