      I love the technique of loosening the skin and putting herbs underneath it. I used some lemon thyme in addition to the garlic and rosemary, and also some lovely chive blossoms - no point in letting them go to waste with a hard frost promised for tonight. Added chives to the rosemary in the cavity. Herbs flavored the chicken and the pan juices. Lovely.

      Boy, oh Boy, this was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, but basted with Smart Balance butter every 15-20 minutes or so. I adjusted the recipe for only 2 Cornish Game Hens as I was only cooking for my husband and I. I wouldn't change a thing! Made for Photo Tag.
