Ingredients

1) Roasted Stuffed Cornish Game Hen Wrapped in Bacon
For the chicken:
- 1 cornish game hen
- 4 pieces bacon

For the stuffing:
- 1/2 cup herbed croutons
- 1 celery stalk, minced
- 1 carrot, minced
- 4-5 roasted french chestnut (optional), minced
- 1/2 of an apples, minced
- 3 tablespoons chicken stock

2) For Charred Brussels Sprouts and Apples
- 225 g brussels sprouts
- 1 1/2 Fuji apples, diced
- 2 teaspoons fat drippings (or olive oil)
- 2 teaspoons applesauce
- 2 teaspoons fried shallots
- sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Wash chicken. Pat dry with paper towel inside and out, rub with salt inside and out. Set aside.

Step 2

Put herbed croutons in a freezer bag and crush just to break it down but do not pulverized. Add chicken stock to moisten the croutons. Add all the other ingredients and shake in a bag to mix.

Step 3

Stuff and truss the chicken. Transfer to a roasting pan breast side down.

Step 4

Bake for about 40 minutes, then crank the oven to 425 degrees F and roast breast side up for another 5 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven and let it rest for about 5-7 minutes.

Step 5

2) Bring 4 cups of water to boil, add salt, add brussels sprouts and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Drain into a strainer.

Step 6

You will notice that the brussels sprouts will still be medium cooked but the residual heat will cook it to perfect tenderness.

Step 7

Heat skillet, add 2 tablespoons of fat drippings, stir in brussels sprouts and apples, until charred and caramelized. Toss in fried shallots, apple sauce, add salt and freshly ground pepper, give a couple of stirs and remove from heat.

Absolutely incredible! Though I didn't make mine with stuffing, only because the hubby and I don't eat it anyway.
