There's a difference between a chicken and a hen, besides the fact that it is a hen that lay eggs and not a chicken. When I travel my my wife's homeland of Jamaica we go to a small shack on the outskirts of Montego Bay that serves hen, stewed or in soup because a roasted hen is kinda tough and not very meaty. It has a different flavor, more gamey I guess you can say. Do you know of any eatery that serves hen?
The same shack- also serves rooster soup or stew on ocasion, that is a pungent soup and although I have not eaten any my wife who has says rooster is tough but very tasty
I am not talking about cornish game hens, I am inquiring about fully grown farm hens that have laid eggs.
