Did you try Cornish hens before? They a those little birds that taste exactly like chicken. Just much smaller.

I also have a beautiful recipe for Cornish hen ramen in Instant Pot, did you try it?

Look at this picture (above), cornish hen looks so tiny compare to a big white sweet onion! Isn’t this funny?

I like to buy my cornish hens in Costco, The sell them for a very very reasonable price (about 18$ for 6 cornish hens from what i remember).

Needless to say i have an extra freezer in the garage, otherwise i would never fit in in my kitchen fridge:)

  1. Did up 2 cornish hens in the 6 qt. instant pot. Very good. Smaller garden potatoes not cut in half came out perfect. Not little potatoes just smaller. Thanks for the recipe it is a keeper.
