Cornish hens...polite fare??

mrsgreer | Mar 23, 2010 04:58 AM

This post is in connection with my original, Spring dinner party menu. I had a trial run for myself and husband & prepared hens 2 ways. One morrocan style roasted hen, and one herb seasoned roasted hen with wild rice apricot dressing. The simple, herb roasted hen was the clear winner for a spring menu BUT my husband insists it will be too messy & a pain in the ...for our guests to eat. I have to admit, the pile of bones left on my plate were unappetizing. Why then are hens and game poultry served in nice restaurants??? i want something which looks impressive on the plate, but am I risking my guests enjoyment by serving hens?? HELP, the party is Saturday.
