This is a great recipe!! So easy to do, I love it! I had to sub in Emeril's Original Essence instead of chili powder. It was very good, my wife even liked it and she doesn't like anything I make, lol!! Thanks again for sharing!

I would recommend adding 2-3 more teaspoons of chili powder to the liquid mixture. Also, the mixture did not leech very well beyond the skin, but for that, I can provide another solution or reccomendation. Oh, the drippings mixture makes an excellant dipping sauce for teared chicken pieces.

We really tried to like these, but there was something missing. The hens DID come out juicy, though, but way too bland.

Excellent recipe. This was my first time making cornish game hens and they came out perfectly. I added garlic and basil to basting sauce and used remaining to dip in...so yummy! I also cooked on orange slices as suggested. Will definetly make again!!!

Sorry, but I didn't care for the flavor of the sauce. I could taste the chili powder and it just didn't taste right. I was surprised that one of my kids ate it - other didn't, but she's very picky. Chicken cooked up nice and was very juicy, but the taste wasn't for me....
