How to Make Jerk Cornish Hen

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 4 steps you must follow to make Jerk Cornish Hen in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Season the hens all over with salt and pepper; poke a few holes into the bone side. Rub 1 cup of the jerk sauce all over the hens in a large bowl or pan. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Step 2
  • Combine the scallions, bell pepper, olive oil, lime juice, garlic, thyme, allspice, ginger, brown sugar, chile pepperand 1 tablespoon of salt in a food processor; pulse to make a thick sauce. Refrigerate 1/4 cup for serving.
  • Step 3
  • Preheat a grill to medium; prepare for direct and indirect grilling: on a charcoal grill, bank the coals on one side. For a gas grill, turn off one of the burners after preheating. Remove the hens from the marinade, letting any excess drip off; place skin side up on the cooler side of the grill (position the legs closer to the fire). Cover and cook until the hens are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Step 4
  • Baste the hens with any extra jerk sauce, then turn them over to the direct heat side of the grill; cook, uncovered, until the skin is dark brown and the meat is cooked through but still moist, 5 to 10 more minutes. (A thermometer inserted into the thickest part should read 160 degrees.) Set the hens aside for 5 minutes, then serve with the reserved jerk sauce.
