Very, very good, KeyWee! My family thought I didn't like Cornish hens, but it was the ricotta stuffing they all like that I objected to. Nothing to object to with this! Will definitely have it again.

This was very good, and I DID make it on a weeknight, after work. I made the recipe as is, using my own blend of seasoned salt, and served with baked potatoes and a big green salad. Thanks KeyWee!
