Count me in too! This is an excellent recipe. My family raved about the flavor SO I did not tell them about the curry...which they all think they do not like! What they do not know will never hurt the. I have been asked to make this recipe keep my secret :)

Very nice way of doing cornish hens. Next time I may add more curry powder, just my personal preference!
