Prep Time: 20 min      Cook Time: 35 min      Servings: 2


1 Cornish Game Hen halved lengthwise, cleaned, backbone removed
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoons Butter, melted
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup combined wild and white rice
1 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoon celery, chopped
2 tablespoon green onions, chopped
1/2 cup Shiitake mushrooms, sliced
2 Shallots, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup Beef broth
1 tablespoon almonds or pecans, toasted, coarsely chopped


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a small bowl combine mustard, butter, salt and pepper. Place hens on baking sheet lined with greased foil cut side down and brush with mixture. Roast for 35 minutes or until juices run clear. Remove from oven and blot on paper towels.

Prepare rice according to package directions using chicken broth in place of water. The final 5 minutes of cooking add celery and green onion.

In a skillet over medium high heat saute mushrooms and shallots in 2 tablespoons butter until tender; add beef broth. Spoon sauce on plates, put rice on top the sauce, sprinkle with nuts, place a roasted hen on top and serve.
