I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.We have really been enjoying our grill since it has warmed up and summer is just arriving, so we have at least three more months of great grilling ahead of us. If you’re following our grillin’ and chillin’ series we’ve already given you some great tips and even grilling cookbooks to keep the grill fun going all summer long. Today, we get to show you how versatile grilling can be. I stopped by my local Walmart to get Chewsy Kids ready for their summer road trip, and I picked up some Tyson Cornish Hens in the frozen section and a bottle of Kikkoman Soy Sauce to #Grill4Flavor and make an awesome chicken marinade. Buckaroo had talked about making some Cornish hens for weeks now (not on the grill) so it was already on my grocery to-do list…eventually. 😉You really can cook everything from appetizers to desserts on the grill. Many times when people think of grilling or barbecue the first thing that comes to mind is meat…more specifically, burgers, hot dogs, chicken, ribs, steak, etc. Well let’s step outside the box. Shall we? We aren’t strangers to Cornish Hens, but grilling them put us on to something new. We usually roast them with vegetables and serve them whole because they are so small.
So when #CollectiveBias challenged us to grill them, we were excited but we honestly didn’t know what to expect. Well the verdict is in and they are delicious! We are serving them up two ways for your viewing pleasure and we hope you will try them out with your own families while you’re grillin’ and chillin’ this summer.So make sure you get to Walmart and get your pack so you can try this recipe!
There are several methods you can use to grill Cornish Hens including “spatchcocking”. Have you ever heard of it? We didn’t do ours like that but I still thought it was really cool. We smoked our hens on aluminum beer bottles so we could get a beautiful, even golden color, and also to steam the chicken from the inside making it super tender. It worked like a charm! NOTE: Use aluminum bottles. You will have a huge mess of glass fragments and exploding chickens if you try and use glass bottles. You’ve been warned. 😉
