Cornish hens on bed of wild rice in the microwave

Cornish hens on bed of wild rice in the microwave

1 box of wild rice (regular rice can be substituted, if so use 1/2 pack of dry onion soup mix for seasoning pack.)
2 1/4 cups of water
2 stalks of celery, sliced thin
1 7 oz. can of mushroom stems and pieces
2 Cornish hens
1 tablespoon of butter for rice
1/2 cup of butter for basting sauce
1 tablespoon of paprika
1 tablespoon of poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste.

In 2 quart microsafe dish, add water, wild rice, seasoning pack from wild rice, celery, and butter. (1/2 pack of dry onion soup mix maybe substituted for seasoning pack with regular rice.) Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir and continue for another 2 minutes. Stir. Set time for 10 minutes at 1/2 power. Continue to cook rice.

In the meantime, wash and half cornish hens.

Remove rice from microwave, which will be partially done. Stir rice. In a microwave safe cup, melt 1/2 cup of butter. Add paprika, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir.

Lay Cornish hens in on top of rice. Orient so that wing tips and leg tips are to the center of dish. Baste hens with butter sauce. Stir rice also at each removal. Return to microwave. Cook at full power for 10 minutes and remove every 3-4 minutes to baste hens again. On second removal, add mushrooms. Continue till hens are done. They should be done about the same time as the liquid is gone from the rice.

All times in the microwave are subjective to the microwave you have and what wattage it is. Times may have to be played with for your particular microwave. This is a great recipe for when you just don't want to heat the kitchen in the summer.

 We have 3 ovens, but all of them are 'traditional' electric ovens. I avoid the microwaves, because I am trying to have as less as possible radiation around me.
 But reading this hens' recipe I think it's easy to prepare it in every kind of oven. :)

This is exactly the way I like to cook (when I do it, because I don't cook so often). ;D

We have one standard oven but live in an arid climate. So using it heats the place up rather fast. During the summer I tend to do more grilling outside as it doesn't heat up the house, like the oven. The microwave is more for convenience. As long as the seals are good on the door and the farady cage is good, there's no worries on the microwave. Mostly use it for warmup but occasionally to cook too.

Most recipes can be adapted. I have a bunch of camping recipes and lots of them are done in the dutch oven. The dutch oven doesn't care where it's heat comes from. Be that coals or stove.
