  1. Remove and discard giblets and necks from hens. Rinse hens under cold running water; drain well and pat dry. Combine 1/3 cup soy sauce, jam and nutmeg; brush cavities of hens thoroughly with mixture.
  2. Coat rice with 4 teaspoons soy sauce. Stir in apricots, pecans and green onions. Stuff hens equally with rice mixture. Place hens, breast side up, on rack in shallow foil-lined baking pan; brush skins lightly with sauce.
  3. Bake in 375 degrees F oven 45 minutes. Brush hens thoroughly with sauce; cover loosely with foil. Bake 45 minutes longer, or until hens are tender; brush occasionally with remaining sauce.

This is a great recipe, I make hens every christmas instead of Turkey, My family loved it, and I will make it again next christmas, instead of trying a new recipe. NEW My family asked me to make this for Thanksgiving, instead of christmas.
