      Think the hens turned out tasty and tender and even ate the skin on it and it tasted good. I think the stuffing was especially good and a type of stuffing I had never had before. I think it would be good for a luau. Cooking time due to the basting seems long and so I was glad I started dinner early. Did not like the sauce made out of the drippings at all and actually tasted it and threw it out and didn't use it.

      This was not what I was expecting at all. I couldn't wait to make this when I found it but when I tried it, it just wasn't what I was expecting I may have done something wrong but the flavors just didn't blend well for us. Although I did enjoy the stuffing.
