BUNDLED UP CORNISH HENS

    Bundled Up Cornish Hens

    Wrapping these Cornish hens in foil makes them juicy. Finishing them on the grill makes them crispy.

    2 (1 pound) Cornish hens
    1 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup honey
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
    1 teaspoon seasoned salt
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    Wash the Cornish hens with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Split in half and set aside.

    Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium-size bowl and mix well. Dip the hen halves into the mixture, coating evenly. Place 2 halves in a 20-inch long piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil and the other 2 halves in another piece of foil. Pour the leftover mixture over the hens and wrap tightly. Place on a preheated barbecue grill over medium-high heat and cook for 30 minutes.

    Remove the hens from the foil and place on the grill, discarding any remaining liquid. Cook the hens for another 7 minutes per side, or until the skin is crispy and the juices run clear.

    Yield: 4 servings
