With the rich, buttery flavors of Creole marinade, seasonings and dirty rice, Chef Ryan André’s recipe for Stuffed Cornish Hens is a wonderfully delicious weeknight meal.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Tony’s Creole-Style Butter Injectable Marinade

  • 1 Box Tony’s Creole Dirty Rice Dinner Mix

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  3. When the rice is finished, spread it out on a cookie sheet to allow it to cool.
  4. Remove the Cornish hens from their plastic and lay them on a stack of paper towels.
  5. Dab the tops of the hens with paper towels making sure the skin is dry.
  6. Using the injection needle on the Tony’s Creole-Style Butter Marinade, inject the marinade throughout the entire bird making sure to get every muscle available.
