"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."

The cornish hens are great, but skip the sauce. It's expensive and not any good. Substitute regular cherry preserves for the sauce.
I just made this for dinner, and it was absolutely delicious! The hens were so succulent and the cherry sauce was just tart enough to bring all of the flavors together. Can't wait to make it again!
The cherry sauce was not well received but the Cornish hens were delicious with nice crisp skins! Our cat tried to steals carcass for himself after the meal so clearly everyone thought it was or looked delicious!
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.
