Instant Pot – Cornish Hens

 

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

 

 

 

Step one:

Set your pressure cooker for poultry. Pressure Cook time on 2 hens is 20 mins for thawed hens or 45 mins for frozen.

 

Step Two:

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.

 

Step Three:

Place both hens side by side on top of rack.

 

Step Four:

Pour Italian dressing over each hen and allow it to pool under the rack at the bottom of the pot.

Step Eight:

Carve and Enjoy.
