Maple-Glazed Cornish Game Hens with Carrots

Maple syrup is an easy, delicious glaze for this quick-cooking bird. Instead of hens, you can substitute a whole chicken; just cook it a bit longer.

Cook's Notes

To give the hens a nice shape and to help them cook evenly, tie the legs with kitchen twine before roasting.

    We used a large Pyrex dish instead of the cooking sheet with the foil that it called for, and added new potatoes in with the carrots and it turned out great! We added a little more olive oil to the veggies mid-cooking and they turned out awesome! We didn't use the lemon juice, but I fathom that is just to taste. Overall, a great recipe.
