This was the first time I have prepared cornish hens. I liked the flavor and was so easy. The "glaze" you brush on hens was quite runny; not a glaze at all. Overall, this was a flavorful and easy weeknight dinner. Thanks!

Not to my liking. Maybe better if vinegar amt reduced by half or quarter and honey increased somewhat.
