Some of the best grilling recipes are the easiest ones. This Cornish hen recipe is simple and sure to please friends and family when you’re seeking a new twist on a grilled chicken dinner. The herbs and charred skin on the game hen make an intriguing Cabernet Sauvignon pairing. Serve with roasted vegetables, a romaine salad and a glass of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon.



Marinate hens in lemon juice, olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper for one hour.

Bring them to room temperature and preheat your grill to medium high. Pat the hens dry. Oil the hot grill and place hens skin side down to mark for 5-7 minutes. Turn hens over, reduce heat to medium and continue to grill until juices run clear, about 25-30 minutes.

Allow hens to rest for 10 minutes before plating. Serve with lightly dressed romaine salad and roasted vegetables.
