"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!"

  • Cook the rice according to package directions.
  • In a small skillet, saute celery and onion in 1 tbsp butter until tender. Stir in the soup, mushrooms and prepared rice.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Hi, I am preparing for Christmas with a group of 15 and would like to know if these can be made the day before, how many I would need and how long they would need to be cooked?

    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.

    My husband just loved this! I made my own rice mix, using 1/4 cup wild rice, 1/4 cup brown rice and 1/4 cup whole barley that I coarsely ground. It made more than enough stuffing! I also didn't have the canned mushrooms(I was sure I had some), but it turned out really good anyway! Thanks breezermom! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

    This was delicious! My 4 stars is because having followed the directions exactly, they still weren't done. I cooked an additional 15 minutes, and thought they were done. All of the rest of the food was ready, so we sat down to eat. I pulled the leg off and it wasn't close to done. Thankfully, the breasts were, so we were able to go ahead and eat. I put the rest of the birds back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
