Cajun Roasted Wild Rice Stuffed Game Hen

I have made this Cajun Roasted Stuffed Game Hen for an Office Potluck. My collegues aww ooh ed this dish, this is the first one to be emptied on the potluck table.  I have got Cajun Spice Inspiration from my last year's Thanks Giving Cajun Style Turkey.  I give all the credit to my oven and Sprouts Store, Since I have picked up the stuffed Game Hen (raw) at Sprouts and let the Oven do all the Cooking! But I get to receive all the compliments! Shhhh! So if you are in rush time and need to bring a homemade dish to potluck, this recipe will make it a lot easier for you, but looks fancy and professional on the table. Win-Win, Love It! Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Wild Rice Stuffed Game Hen Whole - 1
Cajun Spice - 2 Tbsp
Olive Oil - 1/3 cup
Salt - 2 tsp
Black Pepper - 1 Tbsp ( freshly ground pepper)
Baby Potatoes - 10
Fresh Rosemary - 2 strands

Preparatory Steps:
  1. Mix half of Olive Oil, salt and black pepper in a small bowl. 
  2. Wash the Chicken and keep it on a wide plate. Make slight slits on top of chicken. Rub the oil, salt and pepper mixture on all over the chicken.
  3. Rub Cajun Spice all over the chicken until the spices sink into chicken. Leave chicken for 30 minutes with spices on.
  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.  Arrange the stuffed chicken in baking tray. Add Baby Potatoes to the tray. 
  2. Pour remaining Olive Oil on top of chicken and potatoes. Sprinkle some dried Rosemary Leaves. Add 2 Fresh Rosemary Strands. 
  3. Bake in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Test with skewer if it is cooked inside as well. 
  4. Switch off the Oven and serve warm immediately. 
  • If you don't have Rosemary at hand, you can try any herbs Cilantro, Parsley or Mint. 
  • It is okay if you don't have baby potatoes at hand , you can chop the regular russet potatoes and add.That is what i did today. But Baby Potatoes give a nice look.
  • If the game hen is little bigger you might need to bake it for longer time ( up to 1 hour). Usually Game Hens are very small compare to chickens, about 2/3rds of regular chicken.

will be back with another simple and exotic dish,
take care until then
