Game Hens with jalapeno Jelly, TNT
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 jar jalapeno jelly, 7.5 oz
- 2 tbsp. lime juice
- 6 rock cornish game hens
- salt and pepper
1Mix the butter and jalapeno jelly in a pan. Stir until melted on medium high heat. Stir in lime juice. Set aside.
2Cut hens in half. Rinse and pat dry. Place birds, bone side down, side by side, on racks in 10 by 15 inch baking pans. Brush with jelly mixture and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
3Bake at 400 uncovered, until done, about 30 to 40 minutes ( I cooked mine a little longer). Cut to test. Bate occasionally, using all of the jelly mixture. (As I made a lot of the basting sauce, I had some left over. Glad I did, too. It's great to use as a dipping sauce.) Serves 6
