      This is a great recipe! The sauce was delicious and could probably be used for many different meats. My only issue was the massive amount of butter involved; the end result was a bit oily (from the butter and the birds). I may experiment with using less butter.

      Very good! I did add some chopped onions and minced garlic otherwise I followed your recipe the way you wrote it. Very moist and so tender. I served this with green bean casserole and rice. Next time I'll add some carrots and potatoes. Thanks Ranger Rover for posting.

      Very good recipe; the hens were perfectly cooked and so moist using this method. I used white wine instead of sherry, and tucked some carrot chunks and red potato wedges in with the hens to make a complete meal.
