For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 cornish hens
  • 1/2 cup sweet rice
  • 5 chinese dates
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 4 chestnuts
  • 3 green onions
  • 3 ginseng roots
  • 1 piece ginger
  • Water
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper


Soak clean ginseng roots in water to make them soft. In a pan combine previously soaked sweet rice, carved hens, garlic cloves, chestnuts and ginseng. Cook for 20 min.

Cut the drumsticks so that they can hold inner contents of a hen. Stuff hens with rice and spice mixture.

Add diced ginger, olive oil and chopped onions to the pan. Cover with a lid and cook hens for 30 min on low heat.

Once cooked pour the juices on the top of stuffed hens and serve.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
