Orange Cornish Game Hens


  • 3 Cornish game hens
  • 1 box Rice-A-Roni (herb and butter, wild rice or chicken)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small jar orange marmalade


  1. Prepare Rice-A-Roni as per instructions on the box, using one cup of orange juice in place of one of the cups of water.
  2. Stuff hens with Rice-A-Roni. Place the hens in a round 9-inch pan and put extra rice in the center with the giblets from the hens. Salt and pepper the hens.
  3. Place pan in Dutch oven on three bottle caps (so the bottom of the pan does not touch the bottom of the Dutch oven) and bake at about 350 degrees F for 1 to 1 1/4 hours until hens are done.
  4. When hens are done, increase heat in the Dutch oven and baste the hens with marmalade.
  5. Serve.
