Open packaging and wash your little bird. Next we want to cut down the middle of Hen so it can lay flat on grill.

Now place in your baking dish and lets Mix all Marinate ingredients in a small mixing bowl and pour over Hen, cover with saran wrap and let sit for about an hour in fridge. Go ahead and get your grill ready, If your not using grill to cook Hen, then preheat a 375 oven for about 1 hour. or until Hen is fully cooked at core temp of 165.

Remove wrap from Hen and place Hen on grill with tongs, discard marinade (tip: spray grill with non stick spay). Cooking in oven remove wrap and place in a clean baking dish and discard marinade.

While Hen is cooking mix the Basting ingredients together and periodically bast Hen while cooking on grill. If Cooking in oven go ahead a spread onto Hen to bake into Hen. 

When Hen is done you will get a core temp. over 160.
