Broiled Cornish Hens with Molasses and Allspice

Comment on this recipe

We so enjoy the spice, molasses, lemon juice combo, we only use a few grinds of fresh pepper, no salt!

Ingredients

1 tablespoon molasses
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground allspice
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Cornish hens, backbones removed and the hens flattened, washed and patted dry

Instructions

Preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, stir together molasses, lemon juice, allspice, salt and pepper. Arrange the hens skin side down on a lighly oiled rack of a broiler pan and brush them with some of the molasses mixture. Broil the hens about 4 inches from the heat, brushing once more on this side, with some of the molasses mixture, for 10 minutes. Turn them and broil them for 4 minutes more. Brush the hens with the remaining molasses mixture and broil them for 4-5 minutes more, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Serves 2-3 people, depending on size of Cornish hens.
