It is grilling season and who is ready to learn about spatchcocking? A funny word but an essential technique that is pretty easy to get the hang of. I picked up a few packages of the Tyson Cornish Game Hen Twin Pack and a bottle of Kikkoman sauce at Walmart last week to prep for a BBQ dinner. I am familiar with the Cornish hen in my mother-in-law's chicken porridge but did you know that you can grill the Cornish Game Hen as well?


I have a traditional Korean BBQ Marinade recipe that I use on short ribs so I thought it would be a twist to try it on the Cornish Game Hens since we were going to grill them. It's a simple yet flavorful recipe that can be used on many different types of meat. 




Ingredients
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)

Directions

1.  Mix all the ingredients together until thoroughly combined in a bowl and set aside.



2. "Spatchcocking" a hen means that you remove the back and breastbones so that it looks like it is butterflied. It allows for faster and more even cooking. Turn the entire hen breast side down and cut along one side of the backbone with kitchen shears. Rotate the hen and cut alongside the other side of the backbone to remove it.

3.  Open up the hen like a book and find the diamond shaped backbone. Using a knife, cut along both sides of the breastbone and then pull out with your fingers.  
4.  Place spatchcocked Cornish Hens into a plastic Ziploc bag and the pour the marinade inside the bag.


5.  Make sure the hens are fully coated and then place in the fridge for several hours (overnight is best) to soak in all the good flavor.

6.  Grill and enjoy!


There is a $2 off coupon when you purchase the Cornish Hen Twin Pack and a 10oz bottle of Kikkoman sauce together at Walmart. The Kikkoman bottle has a neck hanger messaging or you can print out the offer on www.coupons.com. The coupon is good until September 30th or until supplies last so hurry to Walmart and stock up on some Cornish Hens and Kikkoman sauce for grilling all summer!
