Seared Cornish Hen in Coconut Thai Gravy

Pan Seared Cornish Hen in Thai Coconut Gravy


Just the other day we were sitting watching the Prairie Chickens on the farm and I remembered back to a fun night out at a medieval themed meal where we feasted on a perfectly roasted and juicy Quail with nothing but our bare hands. I decided to should share a favourite dish of mine with a fire lit under it, a Seared Cornish Hen on a bed of noodles with a side of potatoes and smothered in a spicy sweet coconut Thai gravy.
