“A delicious, fragrant broiled (or grilled) cornish hen which derives its glaze from apple jelly, apple cider and five-spice powder. Recipe from Weight Watchers - 7 points per 1/2 hen and 1/2 tbsp. glaze. You can substitute 1 1/2 pounds skinned chicken drumsticks for the Cornish Hens - just increase the cooking time by an additional 5-10 minutes and deduct 2 points per serving.”

Directions

  1. Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler. Broil the hens 7 inches from the heat, skinned side down, 15 minutes. Turn the hens and broil until cooked through, 5-10 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze: Combine the cider, jelly, five-spice powder, salt and cayenne in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the mixture is thick and syrupy, about 7 minutes. Set aside and keep warm (mixture should equal about 1/4 cup).
  3. Carefully remove the skin from each hen. Brush about half of the glaze over the hens. Broil until bubbly, 1-2 minutes more. Place the hens on a serving platter and drizzle with the remaining glaze.
