Game Hen with Pineapple Glaze

My husband loves cornish game hens. As a child his grandmother would make him his own special hen for thanksgiving while the rest of the family ate turkey. I have to admit that I don't do this for my husband but I do try to make him a hen once in a while and this is my favorite recipe for the glaze.
  1. Roast Hens at 350 breast side up
  2. Brush with butter then salt pepper
  3. Bake uncovered, baste with glaze

glaze ingredients

  • 8oz can crushed pineapple
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tbls dijon mustard
  • 1 tbls soy sauce
  • fresh chopped parsley (optional to garnish hens)
  1. combine ingredients in medium sauce pan
  2. scrape hen drippings into sauce 
  3. bring to boil 
  4. reduce and simmer
