Filed under: Chicken Recipes — quotes @ 10:29 pm

Serves 2

This is a close cousin of CHICKEN A LA MONTMORENCY, but it’s spicier and less sweet.

2 fresh Cornish game hens

1 can (16-ounces) dark sweet cherries in syrup

1/4 cup dry sherry

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup chili sauce

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

With poultry shears or sharp knife, split hens lengthwise, removing backbone, if desired. In 12 x 8 microwave-safe utensil, arrange hens, bone side up with meatier portions to outside.

In 2-quart microwave-safe utensil, drain liquid from cherries; blend in sherry and cornstarch. Add cherries, chili sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Microwave at HIGH (100% power) 3 to 4 minutes, stirring once, until mixture begins to boil and thicken. Pour sauce over hens. Cover loosely with wax paper. Microwave at MEDIUM-HIGH (70% power) 8 minutes per pound, turning the hens over halfway through cooking time. Re-cover with wax paper and microwave remaining time. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes.
