RE: Rock Cornish Hen with Peri-Peri

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

They are little game hens. They are very tiny, but, make for a nice dish as it is a perfect serving.

The average size of an American hen is 6.48 lbs (2.94 kg) so that is fairly large. Cornish hens are usually 1-2 lbs with the average being about 1 1/4 lbs (.68 kg) We also make soups here, usually using leftover hens, so as not to waste any of the meat. There is usually leftover meat when roasting a whole bird like that. Grilled chicken/baked chicken is easily used for the soup. The soup is nourishing and delicious and the first thing we reach for when someone is feeling ill. Soup is good food!

Haha! It is my mother's favorite too. That is where I learned to make it.

Thank you for your words. You are so very kind.

Quite large. Ours are approximately 2 to 2,5 kilograms. Well, we weight them when they are alive, then they are slaughtered. So, the final weight should be like sth between 1,8 to 2,3 kilos. They are so delicious though as they are very fresh. There is a saying that goes like " A precio de gallina flaca" ( like the price of a thin hen). We use it when sth does not cost much.

Sure; Also, when it is quite cold.
Have a nice rest of day !
