I love to cook and bake just about everything, but grilling is my specialty. These game hens pick up wonderful flavor from a sweet and refreshing marinade.—Kriss Erickson, Kalauea, Hawaii

Ingredients

  • 2 Cornish game hens (20 to 24 ounces each), split lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Dash pepper

Directions

  1. Place hens in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour half into bag; add the hens. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from hens. Place hens in a 13-in. x 9-in. disposable aluminum pan. Pour reserved marinade over hens; cover pan.
  3. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 35-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 180° and meat juices run clear, basting frequently. Place hens directly over heat for the last 3-4 minutes of cooking time, turning once. Yield: 4 servings.
