Cornish Game Hens and Rice Bake

“This recipe makes a nice dinner and is from The Pillsbury Family Kitchens' Cookbook. I use 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) chicken broth and enough water to make 2 cups (and heat it in microwave) in place of water and bouillon cubes. This recipe can also be used with quartered or cut up frying chicken. I have only made it with the cornish hens.”
