This is a recipe from an old home economics cook book, but it's one I love to make. It is great served with wild rice. Make sure hen is tender before adding honey mixture or the meat will burn. The recipe is for one Cornish Hen, but I couldn't get the software to accept it the way I tried to enter it.
