Got this easy recipe from a friend of mine who loves game hens so I thought I would post it here for you to try sometime. i like these, but don't make them as often as I could/should.

This was good, first time making or eating cornish game hens. (I bought some cornish game hens because they were on sale.) I had everything for this one on hand, so I tried it. Very nice, and I love stuffing, so that was a plus. The birds were very juicy and flavorful. Thanks Ozman!
