Honeyed Cornish Game Hens

I love Cornish game hens, they are just the right size for quick cooking, a healthy source of protein and relatively inexpensive. I can find them for about $6 apiece at a local super store we have here and I think this year I am going to attempt many more recipes with them.

This is a sweet, honey garlic tasting marinade.

2-4  Cornish game hens (1/2 game hen per person)
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons of orange juice

Mix all the ingredients, except the hens, in a blender. Mix until the garlic is completely pureed into it.

Place the game hens into a seal-able container.

Pour the mixture over the game hens and marinade in the fridge for a few hours, or even overnight.

When you are ready to cook, place then onto a foil lined baking sheet. Pour the remainder of the marinade over the hens.

Cook in a 350 degree oven for 25-35 minutes, these cook very fast when halved.
