I love this marinade but don't always want it on hens so I have substituted 4 bone-in chicken breast halves for the hens. I marinate at least 2 hours, baked at 400º for 50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. I poured marinade over the chicken before baking and basted every once in awhile as it was baking. This recipe is adapted from the Southern Living 2000 Annual.

  1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large heavy duty zip-top plastic bag; add hens. Seal and chill 8 hours.
  2. Remove hens from marinade, reserving marinade. Tie ends of legs together, if desired, and place on a lightly greased rack in a roasting pan. bring marinade to a boil in a small saucepan, remove from heat.
  3. Bake hens at 400º for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until hens are done, basting occasionally with marinade. Cover hens loosely with aluminum foil after 1 hour to prevent browning, if necessary.
  4. Remove hens from oven, and cover with foil; let stand 5 minutes.
