“There is no question in my mind, marinating for at least 24 hours makes a barbeque! I don't cook chicken until it's bone dry! Marinating makes the flavor.”

Very tasty and flavorful. We didn't have a grill, so we made it in the oven (450 for 25 mins then 350 for 30-40 mins), and it was delicious that way, as well. Very tender and juicy. Good luck!

Cornish Game Hen tastes great with just salt, pepper, and olive oil, in the oven as well. It comes out surprisingly moist and juicy. This version was very garlic and herb flavored, and maybe because of the strong flavor, we couldn't eat as much of it whereas we usually eat a whole bird each when it's cornish game hens. I love garlic though, so I didn't think it would be too much at all. This dish came out tender and moist, (used an oven) but missed something in flavor...it was almost so rich, yet still missing something flavorwise. I think we like the plain old salt and pepper version better after all that work and excitement of sticking herbs under the skin. Definitely has a distinct flavor to it and worth trying. Next time I'd be curious to stick other things under the skin...like maybe barbeque sauce or something more traditional like that!

I changed a few things on this. I marinated the hens overnight, and then rotissery grilled them (not cutting them in half) I basted the marinade on the hens while they were cooking. The flavor was incredible, and they came out moist and juicy.
