- 4 Tyson® Fresh Cornish Game Hens
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup white wine
- Salt and pepper to taste
- GLAZE SAUCE:
- 1 cup currant jelly
- 1 1/2 tablespoons hot prepared mustard
- 1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
step 1: PREP: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. CLEAN: Wash hands. Generously coat hens inside and out with mixture of melted butter and wine. Place on individual Cornish roasting racks; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in roasting pan with 1 1/4 cups water. CLEAN: Wash hands.
step 2: COOK: Roast at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 375 degrees F and roast 30 minutes longer or until internal juices of chicken run clear.

The last 10 minutes of cooking, brush hens with glaze sauce. Brush with glaze again after cooking.
