"Although our children are grown, it seems like I'm usually feeding a bunch. But when my husband and I dine alone, this is one of our favorite dishes. Stick a couple of baked potatoes in the oven and toss a salad, and you have a great meal."

This was okay. Not my favorite cornish hen recipe. Although it smelled great while cooking, it didn't have a lot of flavor.
