2 (1 1/4-pound) Cornish hens
Cooking spray
1/3 cup mango chutney
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder


Preheat oven to 475°.

Remove and discard giblets and necks from hens. Rinse hens with cold water; pat dry. Remove skin; trim excess fat. Split hens in half lengthwise. Place hen halves, meaty sides up, on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray.

Combine chutney, lemon juice, and curry powder in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-low heat. Remove from heat. Brush half of glaze evenly over hen halves.

Bake at 475° for 27 to 30 minutes or until done, basting with remaining glaze after 15 minutes.

Note: Get the butcher to halve the Cornish hens while they're frozen, or once they're thawed, use kitchen shears to cut the hens in half.
