Cornish game hens basted with a compound butter
Everything comes out so pefect! We are talking crispy skin, tender and juicy on the inside.
Basically a compound butter is butter with something else added in it. Fresh herbs are the bomb bc you cannot over do them.
Here's my spin on this.
I think if you don't have one of these you could easily just bake in the oven and baste with your butter and results would also be delish.
