Cornish Game Hens With Orange Juice and Honey

Cornish Game Hens With Orange Juice and Honey created by Yolanda H.

This recipe is from a magazine and was simply called Cornish Game Hens but I added to the title to help differentiate it here. Sounds delicious but haven't made it yet but when I do, I will season the hens with some garlic powder too.

    I did not have honey on hand, so I substituted light Karo syrup in this recipe. I also added a few whole peppercorns.
