Pressure Cooker Cornish Hens Supreme

Though the recipe calls for sweet potatoes, you may use white potatoes if you prefer. Either one is tasty with Cornish Hens.

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 rock Cornish hens, trussed
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 stalks celery, minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/ tablespoon corn starch




Heat oil in bottom of the cooker.

Meanwhile, stab each lemon several times with a knife; then insert one lemon inside each hen. Truss the Hens and brown all over in the hot oil.

Add remaining ingredients and cook at 15 lbs. Pressure for 15 minutes.

To serve: Remove hens and sweet potatoes and keep warm (discard lemons before serving). Meantime, heat the sauce in the pan and reduce slightly. Then add a pat of butter, and a bit of cornstarch to thicken. Season to taste. Pour over Cornish hens when serving.

Makes 2 to 4 servings.
