I din't want to rate because I switched tarragon for poultry seasonings and water for wine because I'm broke and cleaning out freezer/pantry and I had the hens in the freezer.. It was absolutely flavorful and delicious.

This was fantastic. The hens were very moist and flavorful. Bottle Washer's idea of added potatoes to the pan is great one. We will do that the next time.
