Honey Mustard Cornish Hen


  • 1 Rock Cornish hens
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons teaspoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • optional: 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

note:  If you have leftover honey mustard packets from fast food adventures, that works as a sauce too! Just replace the items in blue with 2-4 honey mustard packs.


  1. Preheat toaster oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line your baking dish with aluminum foil for easier cleanup. Put a rack in the dish if you can for more even cooking.
  2. Put the hen breast side down in the dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Whisk together the honey, poppy seeds, mustard and ginger. Brush the sauce over the hen.
  4. Roast uncovered for 1/2 hour. Turn the hen over and brush the sauce over it again.
  5. Roast for another 1/2 hour.
