Cornish game hen is the perfect last-minute get together dinner meal. Easy to prepare and half of an hen is perfect balance between both white and dark meat. I always have two in my freezer.
The whisky sauce is an adaptation from a recipe in Fine Cooking magazine. Very easy yet delicious. The whisky evaporated as it cooks, leaving a wonderful bold flavor into the cream and butter. Cognac can be used instead of the whisky.
Rice was the perfect pairing. I added some wild rice just because I wanted something different.
We enjoyed a nice glass of Nebbiolo red wine alongside.
