      One of the easiest, best game hen recipes I've ever enjoyed! Had a dinner party, wanted something different yet not time consuming and these fit the bill! Everyone raved about them, and thought I spent hours in preparing. (I'll never tell). Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

      Very easy to make. I marinated the cornish hen before I went to work this morning. Then put them in the oven after I returned from work. Dinner was ready exactly 25 mins later. I made honey garlic carrots and asperagus while waiting for the hens to be cooked. I added one tablespoon of honey to the butter when I braised the hens 2 mins before finish time. The kids gave the dish all thumbs up. Juicy and yummy!
