    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    A delicious, fragrant broiled (or grilled) cornish hen which derives its glaze from apple jelly, apple cider and five-spice powder. Recipe from Weight Watchers - 7 points per 1/2 hen and 1/2 tbsp. glaze. You can substitute 1 1/2 pounds skinned chicken drumsticks for the Cornish Hens - just increase the cooking time by an additional 5-10 minutes and deduct 2 points per serving.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler. Broil the hens 7 inches from the heat, skinned side down, 15 minutes. Turn the hens and broil until cooked through, 5-10 minutes more.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, prepare the glaze: Combine the cider, jelly, five-spice powder, salt and cayenne in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the mixture is thick and syrupy, about 7 minutes. Set aside and keep warm (mixture should equal about 1/4 cup).
    3. 3
      Carefully remove the skin from each hen. Brush about half of the glaze over the hens. Broil until bubbly, 1-2 minutes more. Place the hens on a serving platter and drizzle with the remaining glaze.

      Update Dec.14,2013 The hunter here are still raving about how wonderful this recipe is! For such a simple recipe, it really delivers on flavor and couldn't be easier to make. All love this one! The cornish hens were really tender and juicy and the glaze gave it the right amount of sweetness. Everyone I've made this for has asked for the recipe. It was really easy! Thanks for posting. I wish I tag this one. I did it for the fun at PRMR 2013....Grpa

      This is so delicious...and easy to prepare...I was concerned about the cooking time...normally the hens take around an hour in the oven...but broiling them worked great...I just couldn't part with the crispy skins so I left them on...love the slight apple taste of this dish...all the ingredients worked well with each other...the hardest part was locating the apple jelly...thanks for posting it...=)
