Bourbon Barbecued Hens
|Chili sauce||1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)|
|Cornish game hens||2|
|Vegetable oil||1 Tablespoon|
1. Prepare a medium fire in a barbecue grill or preheat broiler. In a small non-reactive saucepan, simmer chili sauce, bourbon, molasses, and soy sauce over medium-low heat 5 minutes. Use your hands to flatten hen quarters somewhat.
2. Rub hens with oil. Grill or broil, skin side down, 10 minutes. Turn, brush with some of sauce, and grill 10 minutes. Turn and brush liberally with more sauce. Grill or broil until skin is crisp and browned and juices run clear when pricked with a knife tip, about 15 minutes longer.
