  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup onion, small diced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, grated
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Marinade:

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

Put all the sauce ingredients into a saucepan. Over medium heat bring it to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer for 1/2 hour. At the same time mix the marinade together, and rub it all the over hens. Marinate for at least 1 hour. Roast hens in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes, and then brush with sauce. Finish the hens on a preheated grill for another 7 minutes, turning and brushing with more sauce to glaze.
