    Slatts's Note:

    My husband and I have very differing tastes in food but this one dish we both love equally. It was adapted from a Bon Appetit magazine and is nice enough to have on special occasions. The preparation is suprisingly easy for such an elegant dish. Serve with white rice.

      This was an excellent choice for Easter Dinner! In addition to the Game Hens we had a spiral ham which I put the same glaze on. Our entire menu was a hit! There is not one thing I would change about this recipe! Oh! I almost forgot ~ since we had company coming and a large menu, I sent my husband to the local Chinese restaurant for the rice ~ and I'd do that again and concentrate on my hens rather than rice I can pick up, precooked with a lot of leftovers! (Plus we got fortune cookies. . . . )

      This was very good! I made this using two whole cornish hens. I doubled the sauce also. My husband thought it was very good too even though he didn't dress it with the onion, lime and peanuts like I did. Thank you for the recipe, we will use it again.
