I was anxious to try this recipe b/c of all the good reviews. I tried the altered version where one uses 2/3 cup of both broth and wine. It didn't turn out as I hoped. I don't know if it was b/c my Cornish game hens were still partially frozen (after a few days thawing in the fridge) which created extra liquid or the extra broth I used at the beginning of cooking time so the garlic didn't burn. The Cornish hen just tasted like a normal plain chicken...the sauce you could taste nothing of unfortunately:( Plus the hen took much longer to cook b/c the inner thighs were still red even though the top and sides of it were all browned and looked nice. Next time I'll try not to get a frozen one and not use as much liquid for the sauce. Overall...so so. Maybe next time I'll use minced garlic or more of the cloves or something.
