Cranberry Roasted Cornish Hens

Here is a healthy and tasty meal which make a great holiday or anytime main course.  As written below, the recipe will serve 4 (or two really hungry people if side dishes are minimized).  However, it can easily be scaled up to serve additional guests when needed.


For the cranberry sauce:
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or organic unrefined sugar)
1 cup cranberries
lemon juice to taste

For the herb roasted Cornish hens:
2 Cornish hens
Himalayan or sea salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 teaspoons minced, fresh thyme
2 shallots, roughly chopped
1 1/2 carrots, roughly chopped into 1" pieces
1 1/2 stalks celery, roughly chopped into 1" pieces

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Prepare the cranberry sauce: Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat to make a syrup. Remove from heat. Let cool.

3. Puree the cranberries in a blender with half of the sugar syrup. Adjust the taste by adding a few drops of lemon juice and more sugar syrup until a pleasant balance of sweetness and tartness is reached. Divide the sauce in half and set aside.

4. Rinse the Cornish hens with cold water and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper inside and out.

5. Stuff the insides of the hens with garlic and thyme. Place a few pieces of shallots, carrots and celery in the cavity.

6. Scatter the rest of the shallots, carrots and celery on the bottom of a roasting pan. Place the hens on top of the vegetables.

7. Brush the hens with half of the sauce and roast in the oven until the the hens are golden brown and crisp and the juices run clear when the thigh is pierced with a sharp knife, about 45 minutes.

8. When the hens are finished, transfer them to a serving platter and let rest for about 5 minutes. Remove the skin from the hens and cut each one in half. Serve with the remaining cranberry sauce.

Serving Size: 1/2 Cornish*++ hen with 2 tablespoons of sauce
