DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the dried cherries, sage and broth and cook for 2 more minutes. Stir in the cubed bread, salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Season the Cornish hen halves with salt and pepper.
  • Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Form the stuffing into 4 mounds on the baking sheet. Place 1/2 of a Cornish hen on top of each mound of stuffing. Roast the hens for 45 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
  • When the hens are finished, transfer them to a serving platter and let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
