  • 3 bird whole Chicken Meat (Cornish Game Hens)
  • 1 tsp Lime Zest
  • 1/3 cup Lime Juice
  • 8 tbsp Sugar Free Apricot Preserves
  • 3 tbsp Soy Sauce Tamari
  • 2 tsp Garlic


  1. Season hens with salt and pepper to taste; set aside.  Zest and juice the lime.
  2. In a large bowl, mix jam, juice, soy sauce, minced garlic and 1 tsp zest. Add hens; toss to coat. Marinate 1 hour, turning occasionally. Prepare a medium grill. Remove hens from glaze; reserve glaze. Place hens skin side down on greased grill grate, not directly over heat. Cover and cook 25 minutes, until no longer pink inside and juices run clear. 
  3. Meanwhile, heat reserved glaze in a small saucepan over high heat; boil for 1 full minute. During last 5 minutes of cooking time, brush hens with glaze and cook directly over heat source for a crispy skin. Serve with remaining glaze.
