We could not find hens and substituted chicken thighs instead. We also ran out of time and could not marinate the chicken. Instead we put chicken in pan, spread the glaze on one side of the chicken pieces, cooked at 375 for 45 mins, turning at 20 mins. We doubled the glaze amount so that guests could dab more on if they wished (the bowl containing the glaze was practically licked clean). Definitely use fresh, not dried mint.

I followed the recipe exactly, and the hens were absolutely fabulous. My friends raved! It takes a bit of time to skin and quarter the hens, but the glaze is so easy to put together that it's still a quick dish. I will make again and again!

I made this splitting 1 hen in two for the 2 of us. It was plenty with the accompaniments. For the glaze, I did not add the parsley or mint as I didn't think it would add much. Maybe the mint would add flavor but it would be odd. Very simple recipe and good flavor.
