As we are heading full force into grilling season, I enjoy finding new recipes that are both full of flavor plus easy! This past week, I decided to do a chicken marinade to Tyson Cornish Hens. I picked up a bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce to marinade the Cornish Hens with. The sauce gave them a burst of flavor with very little prep work on my part.
I simply used a brush and coated the hens with the marinade then let them sit and soak it all in for several hours. This is simple to do in the morning on the way to work, then when you get home in the evening they are ready to grill!
I don’t know about you but this time of year nearly all our meals end up being cooked on the grill. I love just going outside and enjoying the fresh air while my kids play. They are easily entertained outside which makes it a more enjoyable way to cook for me too. I also feel like something about grilling and being outside just makes the time slow down. Does anyone else feel this way or is this just me?
Let’s get back to dinner! Along with the Cornish Hens, I also cut up bell peppers and vidalia onions. I foil packed them with a little bit of the marinade as well to toss on the grill too! This means, NO indoor cooking at all, plus a delicious dinner too. This would be the perfect dinner to add garlic bread or french bread with too. Simply add a little butter to it and toss it on the grill to make it extra toasty.
I picked up my Cornish Hens and Kikkoman Sauce at Walmart, plus starting June 1st there will be a $2 off coupon on the sauce bottle if you buy both the Cornish Game Hen Twin Pack & 10 oz sauce! The perfect way to make a delicious meal and SAVE!
The reason I love grilling these Cornish Hens besides the amazing taste and flavor is that they give a nice variety to the traditional burgers and steaks. If you are having guests over and want to make a ‘fancy’ meal but keep it on the grill these Cornish Hens are just the answer.
The meat was so juicy, my husband quickly requested that we make these more often.
I also like to serve one whole Cornish Hen to each guest because there is typically lots of bone in the meat as well so one per guests is usually perfect. Of course, I typically end up sharing mine with my kids too!
