    I have made this recipe twice for guests and both times everyone raved about the flavor. Just make sure that you don't cook it too long or it can dry out. The flavors in the marinade are delicious. I doubled the oil and lemon juice for 8 cornish hens, the original amount was not enough to moisten all the birds. This will be great for the summer.

    I LOVE this recipe. I use it on chicken leg quarters and split chickens. Wouldn't change a thing!

    These were excellent! Made for Thankgiving and appreciated how little prep was involved. They were a beautiful presentation and so moist and flavorful. I misinterpreted instructions and cut through breastbone as well, so they were cut in half. But didn't need bricks this way and cooked very evenly. Charcoal grill that wasn't overly hot with 12 mins for back, then 15 for breast, than 5 on backs away from heat to finish cooking through was perfect. Will definitely make again.
