This was the first time I have prepared cornish hens. I liked the flavor and was so easy. The "glaze" you brush on hens was quite runny; not a glaze at all. Overall this was a flavorful and easy weeknight dinner. Thanks!
i'm preparing Cornish hens as i type this. i didn't have OJ on hand, so i used 3 TBSP of orange marmalade thinned out with 1 TSP of hot water. i used the recommended amount of honey, 1 TBSP of soy sauce & 1/8 tsp of vinegar. i tasted tested this glaze to my liking. i'll try to remember to take a photo when it comes out of the oven.
This was very good and easy.
I did modify the glaze however, I added a tablespoon of dark brown sugar, then cooked it down in a sauce pan.
The brown sugar and cooking it down turns it into a glazing sauce before adding to the chicken.
I used this recipe for a package of chicken thighs and it worked great! Modifications: a) I had a dozen thighs so ingredients x 4; b) I marinated the thighs overnight in the sauce - no need to baste during cooking; c) I saved the marinade and boiled it down for 10 min (important to kill bacteria) and added a cornstarch slurry to make a gravy. With rice and veggies it was a bit hit for dinner!
