cornish game hen vs. poussin

villagechow | Feb 10, 2004 12:17 PM

I'm having six people over for dinner and originally wanted to do individually little hens for everyone, but it looks like the cornish game hens run about 2lbs each and the poussins are about 1 lb each.

I could halve the cornish game hens, but can anyone tell me which one would be tastier? Also, is a 1lb poussin enough for one person?

I'll have lots of side dishes as well.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
