Ingredients

  • 3 (1 1/2-pound) Cornish hens
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup coarse-grained mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Riesling or other dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Remove and discard giblets and necks from hens. Rinse hens under cold water; pat dry. Remove skin; trim excess fat. Split hens in half lengthwise. Sprinkle salt and pepper over hen halves; set aside.
  2. Combine mustard and next 5 ingredients (mustard through cloves) in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Prepare grill or broiler. Place hen halves, meaty sides up, on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 15 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting occasionally with mustard mixture. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
