Cornish Hens – Instant Pot
(In my 8-quart Instant Pot with a removable rack. )
Ingredients you will need:
2 Cornish Hens
2 cups of Italian Dressing or Chicken stock
Set your pressure cooker for poultry. Pressure Cook time on 2 hens is 20 mins for thawed hens or 45 mins for frozen.
If you would like to sear the sear the skin this is a great time. (See my post on how to do this in a pressure cooker…. here.) Place a rack at the bottom of your pressure cooker to keep from burning and over cooking the hens.
Place both hens side by side on top of rack.
Pour Italian dressing over each hen and allow it to pool under the rack at the bottom of the pot.
Replace the lid and set exhaust to airtight.
When the hens have finished cooking. Release the pressure.
Remove hens from pressure cooker.. allow to cool 5 minutes.
Carve and Enjoy.
