    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    Years ago I found this recipe on a box of Uncle Ben's original rice. I can always get the man at the meat counter to cut these in half for me even when they are frozen. My daughter loves getting her own "little chicken"

      I didn't actually cook these, my Mother-in-law did, but I did eat them. I had given her the recipe months ago. She said she followed the recipe exactly. They were really good totally different than the plain way we usually prepare them. Excellent!!!!

      This tasted like a gourmet dish without the fuss and time of cooking a gourmet meal. I rubbed salt and butter under the skin before cooking then glazed twice instead of once to get it really browned and sweet. This is my first time cooking cornish hens but certainly not my last!. I served this with the cinnamon glazed baby carrots recipe which complemented it quite well. Thanks, Karen, for the recipe!
