"This was an idea I had for a long time but never got around to doing it and it came out fantastic couldn't have hoped for better. My wife and I loved it. The tart cherries complement the flavorful rub on the hen perfectly. For golden brown crispy skin increase temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for last 10 minutes of cooking."

ground black pepper
unsalted butter, melted
Cornish game hens
1 (15 ounce) can
tart cherries, drained
1 1/2 cups
pulp-free orange juice

all-purpose flour, or as needed
Wonderful mix of flavor. I was worried it would be too sweet for me however it was a very nice balance of flavors. It did make quite a bit of cherry sauce, easily enough for 4 hens.
