Wrapping these Cornish hens in foil makes them juicy. Finishing them on the grill makes them crispy.
2 (1 pound) Cornish hens
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
2 1/4 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.
Chicken, turkey, game hen, water fowl etc.
