Rated 5 out of 5 by from OM-Gosh! OM-Gosh!!!! This was very simple to make, I made it last night for my New Years dinner desert today and it was a big hit I already was asked to make again for next Friday's church meeting! THIS IS A CROWD PLEASER! I too used heavy duty non-stick foil & it works like a charm... Happy New Year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was so good. This was so good. But it's a little rich. I could only eat half of my cornish hen. My husband ate the whole thing. To me this is the best way to fix a cornish hen.
