Rock Cornish Game Hens are delicious and a great alternative to other poultry choices. Although they are small, they are best split in half and baked or grilled. I love them cooked in a variety of ways, but grilled is especially wonderful. Crispy skin when grilled, they taste delicious. This is one of our favorite ways to prepare them.
2 Rock Cornish Game Hens, split in half (or more depending on family size)
2 Tbls. Blackberry Jam
2 Tbls. Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper ( I use Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt)
Mix Blackberry Jam and Balsamic Vinegar together in a small bowl; set aside. Split Rock Cornish Game Hens in half and sprinkle both sides liberally with salt and pepper. Grill over direct medium low heat, bone side down 10 minutes. Turn over to breast side down and grill another 10 minutes. Turn over again and brush liberally with Blackberry Jam/Balsamic Vinegar mixture and continue to cook another 10-15 minutes or until cooked through; brushing more sauce on as it cooks. Serve brushed with more sauce over top.
