Cornish game hens are really just young chickens; they’re not hunted game at all. Their diminutive size is perfect for the cook who can’t commit to a larger chicken or turkey, and they have a light, succulent chicken flavor. Feel free to substitute another stuffing for the millet version.
Special equipment: Be sure to have at least 4 (12-inch) pieces of butcher’s twine and 4 toothpicks assembled before you begin.
Game plan: The stuffing can be prepared up to a day in advance, cooled, and refrigerated in a container with a tightfitting lid.
