I’ve said it many times recently: Mike and I love entertaining. Especially once the weather is as delightful as it’s been the last few days! It’s truly been the perfect time to have friends over and enjoy each other’s company. We’ve been grilling out in the backyard almost every night — it’s the perfect opportunity for adults to visit, the kids to play and for me to experiment with new dishes. This weekend, we tried something brand new: creating a chicken marinade, spatchcocking it and then grilling. It turned out to be an amazingly tasty dish and I can’t recommend it enough. 

Grilled Tyson Cornish Hen Recipe #Grill4Flavor

The entire menu played off the delicious chicken seasoning, marrying terrific flavors together for a wonderful experience. It’s a meal I truly can’t wait to recreate in the very near future.

In between work and Sam’s school this week, I stopped at Walmart to get in a little shopping. I wanted to grab the ingredients needed for this meal. I was excited to try something new on the grill that neither Mike or I have ever tried before: a Tyson Cornish Hen. I’ve been missing out my whole life obviously because it was SO delicious. {You can get a $2 off coupon on any bottle of Kikkoman sauce starting this week when you purchase it with a Tyson hen.} Kikkoman is a go to sauce for me since I know I can trust their excellent flavor no matter what I marinade. 

Here’s my menu + the chicken marinade for the Tyson cornish hen on the grill:

cold mango soup blender

Cold Mango Soup 

I recently made this and loved it. Since the weather was amazing, I wanted to try it again. Just use three mangos, one can of light coconut milk, the juice from one orange, eight ice cubes, one teaspoon cardamon. Blend and enjoy!

chunky cold potato salad

Chunky Cold Potato Salad 

I boiled six yukon gold potatoes and let them cool. I also boiled two eggs. Then, smash both together with a fork. Next, mix half a cup of mayo and two tablespoons of jalapeno mustard and fold into the potatoes and eggs. Chill until you’re ready to serve.

First, break the hard bottoms off the asparagus. Toss in oil and sprinkle on salt. Put on a vegetable grilling tray and place on low heat on BBQ for about seven minutes. For the glaze: 2 tablespoons of Kikkoman soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons any vegetable oil (I used grapeseed), 1/4 cup sesame oil, 1/page/8 cup of honey, 1 clove garlic, 1 teaspoon ginger, pinch of sesame seeds.

1. Using the spatchcocking technique to butterfly the bird, I marinated it overnight in Kikkoman teriyaki glaze. While BBQing, I used additional Kikkoman teriyaki sauce straight from the bottle to glaze the Tyson cornish hen.

2. I kept hen whole and marinated it overnight in 2/3 cup Kikkoman orange sauce. Then, I cut the lid off a mini soda can and poured the used orange marinade into the can. I put the cavity of the bird over the mini can. Next, I used a BBQ safe tray to balance the can with the hen on top. I glazed the bird with additional orange sauce straight from the bottle.

You can also use the Kikkoman Sweet and Sour Sauce with a splash of Kikkoman Soy Sauce for another fantastic dipping sauce.
