My husband loved this Grilled Rock Cornish Game Hens . He said this Grilled Rock Cornish Game Hens had lots of taste and I agreed. Anyone will love it!
  Rock cornish game hens 2 , halved
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Orange juice/Apple juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Onions 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs), chopped
  Rosemary 1⁄2 Teaspoon, crumbled
  Thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)
  Parsley 1 Bunch (100 gm) (For Garnish)

Place the game hens in a shallow roasting pan.
Combine the oil, juices, water, onions, rosemary, and thyme in a small bowl and add the garlic by pushing it through a garlic press into the bowl.
Pour over the hens.
Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours, turning once or twice.
Drain the hens and place on a grill or under a broiler, keeping the meat far enough away that it will cook slowly and not burn.
When the meat is tender and cooked through, about 40 minutes, remove skin and place on a large serving plate garnished liberally with parsley, if desired.
