For Father’s Day, we made SuperFine a Thanksgiving Dinner with a Game of Thrones theme, except I couldn’t get a fresh turkey on such short notice, so we used Cornish hens instead. And I always over cook because we never know who might show up for one of our themed dinners.
So now I have a bunch of leftover cornish hens. I froze them, so they’re still good, but I need to figure out what to do with the meat once I take it off the bone.
Nobody wants anything like chicken salad, so that is out, but I’m open to anything. So please give me some ideas of what I can do with these already cooked hens.

Could you do a chicken noodle soup with big chunks of hen? That would be tasty and comforting for lunch.

De-bone the chicken, and crockpot it with some grape jelly, BBQ sauce, and a little garlic powder for about an hour. Instant shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches. So delicious!

My family loves chicken stir fry. You can get the stir-fry veggies in the frozen food aisle and eat it over rice or noodles.

We ended up making super cheesy enchiladas with the hens and it was unbelievably good. There was so much of it too! We brought some for lunch at work today and froze some for a dinner next week.
Thanks for all of the great ideas!
