I love cornish hens and think that they are forgotten at times. So, I tried to create a dish with a lot of my favorite fall flavors. Roasted poultry, squash, rich herbs, fruits, grains and fall greens. I love this with a sauteed kale on the side and baked apples for desert. One of the easiest best desserts. This is a great elegant meal that kids love and adults as well. Who doesn't love eating their own mini chicken ... Elegant but still great comfort food.
