Stuffed Cornish Game Hens
Source: Taste of Home (Entered by Karen Heiney)
I really liked this recipe. We eat a lot of chicken so I’m always looking for something a little different. The mint in this recipe does the trick. If you don’t have it on hand, it tastes great too!
Serves: Serves 2 generously!
