Honey & Cumin Glazed Cornish Hens

When I went looking for a picture for the Honey-Poppy Seed Glazed Cornish Hens, I came across this recipe, which looks too good to miss! I have to buy some more ingredients but will definitely be trying this in the future!

Honey & Cumin Glazed Cornish Hens


1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons cumin seed, toasted and crushed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

4 Cornish hens, split in half
Salt and pepper


  1. Combine glaze ingredients.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. Rinse hens and blot dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Using about a third of the glaze, brush both sides of hen halves.
  5. Place, skin side down, on a baking sheet with low sides. Place in oven and roast 10 minutes.
  6. Turn heat down to 375°F, brush hens again with half the remaining glaze and roast 5 minutes.
  7. Turn hens over and roast 10 minutes.
  8. Brush with remaining glaze and roast until deep golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Serves 8 (or 4 hungry adults)
