Christmas Cornish Hens with White Wine (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 12/25/2015 - Cornish hens make a great alternative to turkey, especially for a small group, or a couple. This version uses Cornish hens and white wine to deliver a tasty variation on the great French classic Coq au Vin. It will make a great anchor for any holiday dinner.

  • 2 Cornish hens, 1 to 1½ pounds each, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon
  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour or potato starch
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Directions:
Heat a large stock pot over medium heat and add the bacon.

Cook until browned and crisp and the fat is rendered. Remove the bacon to a paper-towel.

Season birds heavily with salt and pepper, then dredge in the seasoned flour until coated.

Heat the pan with the bacon fat over medium heat.

Add the hens and brown on all sides.

Carefully add the wine, letting it bubble and release the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. No white wine? Use red wine.

Stir in the water and garlic cloves and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover and braise until hens are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Transfer the hens to a platter and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

Continue simmering the liquid, uncovered, until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Season gravy with salt and pepper, to taste.

Nestle the hens in the gravy and simmer until heated through.

Arrange the hens on a serving platter.

Crumble bacon over hens, and serve with gravy, surrounded by your favorite sides.

Wish I could give you a hug. Unfortunately I know how that feels with Neurologists, Internists, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists, GIs..... I got so tired of crying my drive home after refusing yet another script for Prozac. I do hope your GI can give you some answers even if it is just to rule out other possible issues. Keep on the gluten and we are here for you.

It is too bad that so often a full panel isn't done. Glad your appointment got moved up and hopefully you will get a clearer answer from the GI. Do keep eating gluten until the celiac testing is done. Once the testing is done do give the diet a good strict try. Hang in there.

That makes sense...I cried with relief when I got my diagnosis just because there was finally an answer. Please know that you are not weak or crazy. Keep pushing for testing. It could still be celiac, it could be Crohns. Push your Dr's to figure this out. Best wishes.

Thank you all very much. I actually cried when I got the answer. I wanted an explanation that I could "fix." Now I'm back to thinking I'm just weak and possibly crazy. I know I'm not crazy, but you know.

From what I have read online there is about a 1-3% chance of getting a false positive for celiac disease from a blood test. Was it a blood test that you got done? It may be worth your while to get a biopsy or more testing just to confirm it. I know being gluten free is a pain but it is better than getting cancer or other auto immune disorders.
