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.

We eat cornish hens at least once a week; my DH loves them, so this was a great change from the ordinary way that we always make them. I cut up some potatoes and carrots and placed them around the hens...dinner in one pot...LOVE IT!

I was looking for something a little different and good. This turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. I didnt change anything just followed directions as shown.

delicious! I haven't made cornish hens in years and hubby loves them. was looking for an easy & tasty recipe and this was really spot on! the only thing I did was to add a little garlic powder to the gravy along w/ the s&p and then after I browned the hens rubbed them with a little salt/pepper as well. Will definitely be making this one again!! Thanks for sharing!

This was delish!!! I added about 1/2 cup marsala and baked the hens on top of chunks of carrots, potatoes, rutabagas and parsnips. All together, the flavours were incredible. The baking time was over 2 hours all together.
