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!

Great flavor . This recipe produces a juicy, tender hen. I cut back to one hen, baked it at 400F for 50 minutes. Marinated it for 6 hours. Easy tasty recipe Thanks Miller for a lovely Thanksgiving Dinner

perfection! i, too, was a bit apprehensive on account of the high temp, and actually ended up tenting my hen for the last ten minutes [MISTAKE!] .. because of my personal slip, the skin didn't capture the crisp that i would have liked, but again .. my fault. i was searching for a simple game hen roasting recipe, as i was preparing mine specifically for 'chicken' salad, the next day. this fit the bill, and then some. the flavor was so good that i had to tap my own wrists to not eat the whole thing before chicken salad could be made! thanks miller!

Superb! Birds stayed moist and very flavorful. I spatchcocked before cooking . Make chicken stock with the carcasses and the flavor was incredible, will make often on all kinds of poultry

Oh my gawd! What a great recipe! At first I thought the temp would be too high. Not the case. I brine my cornish hens first in water,kosher salt, and brown sugar in the fridge for a least a day. I find using kitchen shears to cut the hens in half is helpful. From then, I used the exact recipe to marinade them. Marinaded over night. Cooked as directed. They were the BEST cornish hens I have ever made! Thanks so much!!!

This was excellent--my husband chose this recipe and decided to make it. :) His biggest gripe was the pain of removing the ribs and the backbone. He used 4 tablespoons of butter to baste the hens halfway through, and took him 25 minutes to bake them. He served it with rice.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this recipe. The Cornish Hens came out very moist and flavorful. This is a recipe that I will definately make again. I think the next time I make this, I'm going to lay the Cornish Hens on a layer of sliced lemons. Thanks for a great recipe.
