What a wonderful easy dinner to prepare. We loved the flavors of spices on the game hen and the veggies. This worked very well together. The hen was nice and tender. My red potatoes were on the extra firm side after cooking. Thats due to using med and not small potatoes. The sweet potatoes just melted in your mouth. Thanks for posting. :)
