  1. Step 1

    If you want to dress up your Cornish game hens, prepare the hens before roasting with one of the rubs detailed below. Add the glazes in the last 15 or 20 minutes of roasting, as noted.
  2. Step 2

    Roast the hens at 375 F for about 1 hour, regardless of the glaze or rub you choose (or if you choose not to add one at all).
  3. Step 3

    When the juices run clear (when a thigh is pierced with a knife) and a meat thermometer registers 170 F, the hens are done.
  4. Step 4

    Serve Cornish game hens simply roasted out of the oven or with one of the variations detailed below.
