For the Cornish hen marinade

For the okra stew

  • 16 oz Frozen Cut Okra or 2 ¼ cup Fresh Okra cut in halves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 - 3 Garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes diced
  • 1 tsp Noubess Hot and Spicy Mango Sauce
  • 1 medium white onion sliced
  • 3 - 4 Whole cloves
  • 1 tbsp Herbs de Provence or Italian Seasoning
  • ¾ cup of warm water
  • Salt to taste


  • Prepare your marinade by mixing the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, chicken bouillon powder, and Noubess Hot and Spicy Mango Sauce in a bowl and set it aside.
  • Prep the hens: cut up the hen into smaller pieces - same as you would if you were cutting a whole chicken. Place the pieces into a large bowl and mix with the marinade. Let marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.

  • Fresh ingredients are always to use when cooking. 
  • Serve with white rice, rice, and beans, or rice with peas. Also serve with boiled plantains, boiled potatoes, or boiled yams. 
  • You can also use a green or fresh seasoning blend instead of the Herbs de Provence or Italian seasoning. 
  • Using tomato paste of tomato puree is optional. 
  • Any leftover, store in a glass or BPA free plastic container with a lid.
  • Best to roast the cornish hens instead of frying them. Roasting is healthier than frying.
