I made this last night using whole chicken legs instead of the Cornish Hens, but otherwise followed the recipe. Very quick and easy. It was great - my husband called it a keeper. Served it with dilled carrots and a tossed salad. Will definitely put this in my chicken recipes rotation.

The results of this recipe were very good. Used the cornish game hens and followed the directions exactly. Use a non-stick roasting pan, however, because the jelly sticks and burns to it. Also tried the green bean and bacon receipe, but found it to be too greasy. Would make again and also for company.

This was so simple, yet so tasty. A great meal to make when you don't have much time for prep work. I didn't have red currant jelly, so I used raspberry jam instead and it was delicious.

The glaze was great, but the meat under the skin had none of that great flavor, in fact the meat was flavorless and needed some type of seasoning. If I use this recipe again, I'd definitely add some salt & pepper under the skin.
