Deviled Cornish Game Hens

Really fast and easy. This works well w/ chicken quarters or pieces also. Adjust your cooking time.

2 1 1/4 lb Cornish hens, halved & flattened (Ask the butcher to half them)
1/4 C dijon mustard
1 Tbl olive oil
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp cayenne

Arrange hens skin side down in a broiler pan. Salt and pepper the birds. Broil about 4" from heat for 10 minutes. Mix all remaining ingredients together. Brush 1/2 the mixture on the hens and broil another 5 minutes. Turn skin side up, season with salt and pepper and broil 5 minutes. Brush on remaining mustard and broil 5 more minutes. Let rest 5 minutes and serve.

Times for chicken parts:

bone in breasts - about 15 minutes total broiling time (unless they're huge)
boneless breasts - about 10 minutes total
Leg and thigh quarters - about 25 minutes total
