Bundled Up Cornish Hens


Wrapping these Cornish hens in foil makes them juicy. Finishing them on the grill makes them crispy.



  1. Wash the Cornish hens with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Split in half and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Place on a preheated barbecue grill over medium-high heat and cook for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the hens from the foil and place on the grill, discarding any remaining liquid.
  5. Grill the hens for another 7 minutes per side, or until the skin is crispy and the juices run clear.
