Got this on a card - right before Easter. Timing is everything! If the glaze tastes too tart I plan to add an equal amount of reduced orange juice with plenty of orange zest.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Rinse hens, pat dry.
  3. Set on roasting rack in oiled pan.
  4. Tie legs together.
  5. Roast uncovered 50 - 60 minutes - until juices run clear.
  6. While hens roast, place juice in a small saucepan; sprinkle with a dash of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer 10 minutes. Set aside.
  7. When hens are near done, brush them liberally with the glaze & roast for another 5 minutes. May repeat as you wish.
  8. Place hens on a platter, optionally scatter 2 T arils (pomegranate seeds) across them & serve.
