Ingredients

  • 4 Cornish game hens, split
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • Apricot-Chipotle Glaze

Preparation

  1. Rinse game hens with cold water, pat dry with paper towels, and set aside.
  2. Combine cider, salt, and peppercorns in a large bowl or heavy-duty zip-top freezer bag. Add game hens, and marinate in refrigerator at least 4 hours.
  3. Remove hens from marinade. Place on preheated grill at medium-low heat. Grill 30 to 35 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the meaty part of the thigh registers 165°. During the last 10 minutes of grilling, reduce heat to low; brush hens with half of the Apricot-Chipotle Glaze. Brush with remaining glaze before serving.
  4. Note: Hens can be baked in an oven at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the meaty part of the thigh registers 165°.
