I LIKE this recipe for Cornish hens because it’s easy to do and a delicious entrée for two. The basting ingredients result in a beautifully browned hen, sealing in the juices so that it is moist, tender and quite flavorful.

Classic Mediterranean flavors such as lemon, garlic and olive oil are used to season this tender hen. It's then seared in a hot skillet and weighted with a foil-wrapped brick before being finished off in a hot oven. The weight of the hot brick helps the poultry cook more quickly, so the meat stays moist.—Taste of Home Cooking School, Greendale, Wisconsin

The mustard in this dish surprises people. Combined with the citrus, it provides a real double "zing". You can also vary the ingredients, if you like. As an example, I've found the hens are tasty with orange marmalade. My husband's a grade school principal, and we have a 14-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son—resulting in a lot of schedules to juggle in our house. Sometimes, I'll cut the hens in half and have supper ready in 45 minutes.
