    I’ve never tried game hens, but this sauce looks absolutely luscious. I may try this with the whole chicken I have in the freezer 🙂

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Cindy, it will work wonderfully with your chicken as well.
      Bon Appetit!

    This is a great dinner recipe, we have a gathering next week and I’ll suggest this recipe for us to try.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      That is wonderful! Thank you for trying this recipe and I do want to see pictures.

    Gosh, the flavours in this dish are amazing! I love and often use herbes de Provence in cooking for this reason. And it’s true, a dash of alcohol brings more flavour to any dish. I need to find a little hen and make a delicious dinner for the family!

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      A very small hen would work fine if you do not have the cornish hen accessible.

  6. Marita says:

    Wow- I cannot wait to try this. Looks delicious and the mentioning of whisky thought awakened my curiosity and appetite.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you, Marita! You will love the wonderful flavor of the essence of the whiskey once the alcohol has evaporated.
      Bon Appetit!

    This is so delicious and I could literally take a bath in that sauce! The chicken was so moist too. Will definitely be making this again!

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      You are so right, that sauce is to die for and I always try making more than I should and it never seems to be enough.

  8. Daniel Ng says:

    OMG. The moment I saw this, my saliva is drooling.

      Thank you, Daniel. I hope you will make it.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you, Nancy! I am happy you enjoy it

  10. Danny says:

    I am going to use bourbon whiskey and instead of shallots I am going to use ombré cherries and some honey Dijon mustard

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Sounds divine and I would love if you could share your pictures and let me know how it turned out. Thank you.
