This is delicious and fragrant dish from WW - 7 pts. per 1/2 hen and 1/2 tbsp. glaze. You can substitute skinned chicken drumsticks - just increase the cooking time by an additional 5-10 minutes.

  • 2
    cornish game hens, halved (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 c
    apple cider

How to Make Apple-Glazed Cornish Game Hens

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray and preheat the broiler.
  2. Broil hens 7 inches from the heat, skinned side down, 15 minutes. Turn the hens and broil until cooked through, 5-10 minutes more.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Combine the cider, jelly, five-spice powder, salt and cayenne pepper in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the mixture is thick and syrupy, about 7 minutes. Set aside and keep warm (mixture should equal 1/4 cup).
  4. Carefully remove the skin from each hen. Brush about half of the glaze over the hens. Broil until bubbly, 1-2 minutes more. Place the hens on a serving platter and drizzle with the remaining glaze.
