This recipe is quick and easy to put together. I followed the recipe precisely, including the optional green onions. I thought the veggies were wonderful, very tender and flavorful. The game hen was not as tender as I would have anticipated. Overall I thought the dish was good, but not something I would serve to guests or one I would probably make again (I've discovered that I prefer the taste and texture of a roasted game hen). The PC directions were spot on though and easy to follow. Thanks for posting this recipe. It's always exciting and fun to see PC recipes on zaar.
