Looks like a nice dish. This site has a great version of this recipe www.entertainingrecipes.org
Very tasty. I double the recipe and made the cornish hens whole (to avoid the problem the other viewers reported where the cut side gets too salty). They were delicious, quiet salty, but I like salt. Very moist. I served it with CL Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Onion and stuffing with gravy.
This was good. I used two cornish hens, cut in half, so I had four halves. I didn't double the rest of the ingredients, and STILL had some of the salt mixture left over. perhaps I didn't coat them as heavily as suggested. But they were still very good. I'd agree that the part of the bird sitting on the oval of salt did taste saltier than the rest of the bird, but all in all, this was delicious. and low-cal!!!
