Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For stuffing, in a small skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until vegetables are tender. Stir in brown rice, wild rice, basil, Parmesan cheese, salt, and nutmeg. Tear a 36x18-inch piece of heavy foil. Fold in half to make double thickness that measures 18x18 inches. Place stuffing in the center of the foil. Bring up two opposite edges of foil and seal with a double fold. Then fold remaining ends to completely enclose the stuffing, leaving space for steam to build. Chill the packet until ready to grill.

  • Twist wing tips under back. Tie legs to tail. Stir together honey and mustard.

  • Arrange preheated coals around a drip pan in a covered grill. Test for medium heat above pan. Place hens, breast side up, on grill over drip pan. Cover and grill for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until tender (180 degrees F), brushing occasionally with mustard mixture the last 10 minutes of grilling. Place the foil packet of stuffing beside the hens on grill rack. Grill foil packet directly over medium to medium-high coals the last 15 to 20 minutes of grilling. To serve, cut hens in half lengthwise with poultry shears. Serve with stuffing. Makes 4 servings.


Prepare stuffing and wrap in foil. Chill up to 24 hours.
