I met a lady in Tucson at the store buying Cornish hens and asked her what she was going to do with them. She gave me this recipe.
If hens had been frozen, make sure they are thoroughly defrosted or they will dilute the sauce. Also watch carefully at the end as they can blacken easily.
This recipe is so easy and delicious, especially if you are having company, it's impressive.
Cranberry jelly is difficult to find and you can substitute another kind but it won't be quite as good.
