Cook's Tips: Two cornish hens (about 1 1/4-1 1/2 pounds each) can be substituted for the chicken. To prepare hens, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Remove backbone by cutting on either side with kitchen shears. Lay hen flat and cut in between breasts to separate into halves. Repeat with second hen. Marinate and grill as directed 30-35 minutes or until chicken registers 170F in thickest part of breast portion and juices run clear.

Use the instant read Pocket Thermometer or Digital Thermometer to accurately check the temperature of the chicken for doneness.
