Brining is—hands down—the best way to infuse poultry with loads of flavor. Especially something like Cornish hens, which can be pretty tasteless. I've given these bland little babies a huge boost with Asian flavors like ginger, star anise, kaffir lime leaves and dried chiles and left them to brine for 24 hours. So tender, so flavorful and so much fun to tear apart with your fingers and eat with sticky rice, lettuce leaves and sliced chiles. SEE RECIPE »
