    This is a family favorite. I have made it several times and it was well received each time. I serve it with wild rice and steamed snowpeas. I have not had leftovers yet.

    The orange flavor was not noticeable except on a couple areas of the hen. Needed to cook closer to an hour. Will probably try again but will need to adjust to make orange flavor more noticeable. May try it grilled or broiled and definately will need to baste the meat with the sauce to get that flavor going. Good company meal for close friends (someone you're not trying to impress) or a family meal that's a step above the norm.

    I've made similar recipes in the past, but never at such a high temperature. I will definitely try it, thank you!

    This was very very good. I did have a problem splitting and skinning the hens though. Once I removed the skin, the thigh and leg poriton did not stay attached to the breast portion. The skin was what held them together and without it, it didn't hold. I ended up with quartered hens instead of halves but this was fine as it didn't affect the flavour. I served it was Steamed Ginger-Garlic Carrots (Cooking Light) and Basmati Rice tossed with Cilantro.
