Recipe by Chef John
"I served these spicy grilled game hens on a bed of romaine lettuce with a spoonful of the Calabrian chile paste for garnish. It's a very delicious, flavorful, moist chicken."

We loved this recipe; I had sambal chili paste on hand and used that. The chili, orange and garlic gave great flavor while the vinegar in the marinade made the chicken oh so tender. This one is a keeper.
Very moist and flavorful. I made it with game hens Needed to substitute sambal oelek for calabrian chili sauce. Will add more next time,not spicy but the citrus shined through with a new flavor combination that we enjoyed! Not the same old stuff. Thank you Chef John
