    Leftovers, pssshh! I’d eat way too much of this for there to be leftovers! I love Cornish hens, and I too love chicken. I do have cravings for other proteins, of course, but chicken is my go-to meat of choice. These look delicious, especially with the proscuitto. And that salad, so pretty!

      Thanks so much Alta! (FYI, we didn’t actually have leftovers, but I thought some people might…)

    Is it me, or do cornish hens have a better, deeper, chickeny flavor than their big fat cousins? Cornish hens were one of the first things I ever made, too. I remember specifically, though it was probably 15 years ago now. I rubbed ‘em up with rosemary, butter and garlic under the skins and was it ever good. Memorably good.

    Yours is one fine looking plate, almost like it’s right in front of me. Your photos are mighty vivid! The hens look like their sleeping under a blanket.

      I agree. Stronger flavour in a smaller package. How could you go wrong? How weird that we both made the same thing…mmm, yours does sound good though rubbed in butter. Butter makes everything better…:)

    I love your all your photos! I was immediately drawn in by the prosciutto wrapped around the chicken – wow, it looks amazing!

    Where do you find Crema di Balsamico? I’ve only ever seen aged balsamic… BTW, prosciutto wrapped anything is so to die for. Thanks!

      In Victoria, you can find it in the deli section at Thrifty’s. There is white and dark versions. Expensive but it should last you a while.

    That looks absolutely delicious, especially with the fresh salad to go with it. I’ve never tried cornish hens, but I have seen them used in cooking before and I love the idea of having one little hen to yourself – very gourmet! I’ll have to keep my eyes open for them because I’d love to try one!

    The salad looks gorgeous, such vibrant colours. I love the idea of the game hens, so flavoursome, moist and tender. Yum!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog btw :)

    I love the look of that caprese salad. One question. What is the first ingredient? I have never heard of them and my best guess was onions perhaps? It’s horrible right? But help a lady out please… Thanks.

    My best, Lynn

      Bocconcini is a type of cheese. It is made from water buffalo milk and is tender and spongy. They are delicious!
