      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!

      Hi~ We had these for dinner last night and they were great. I made the stuffing on the side with a little added broth. The hens were full of flavor, tender and juicy. Thanks for posting Di

      I thought this recipe was fantastic! So simple, and so yummy all at the same time. I did not stuff the birds, however. I decided to go on ahead without that. But my fiance and I just loved this, and will make this again for sure! Thanks for the great recipe!
