  • 1 pkg. Supremas 10lb. Cornish Hen Pieces (Family Pack)
  • 12 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3.5 cups lemon juice
  • 8 tbsp. black pepper
  • 3 tsp. salt


  1. The good thing is that you do not have to cut these!
  2. This package comes pre-cut and ready to prepare, marinate and place on the grill!
  3. Rinse with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. In a medium sized bowl combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. Place hens in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  7. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  8. Prepare for indirect grilling and preheat the grill.
  9. **For indirect grilling, place a metal pan of water that fits in your grill under the center of the grill grate. A disposable metal roasting pan will work best for this.
  10. Remove hens from marinade and place on grill, skin side up away from the direct heat.
  11. Baste with remaining marinade during while cooking.
  12. Hens should take about 30 minutes. Test for doneness before removing from grill.
