  • Summary

    Given their small size, Cornish hens are a great choice for the grill. Once split and flattened (called spatchcocking) they cook quickly, stay moist and juicy and have so much natural flavor they need very little attention in the seasoning department. Our recipe calls for just a little salt, pepper and garlic powder and a finishing glaze of honey and fresh lemon juice. It's easy, quick and goes great with classic summer sides like fresh corn and a green salad.

    Ingredients

    • 4 cornish game hens (1-1/4 to 1-1/2 lbs each)
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 lemon wedges
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
