Ingredients

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat setting. Make Aegean herbed butter by combining all ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Cut each hen down the backbone, and spread flat on cutting board. Slip your hand between the meat and skin on breast and thigh sections to loosen. Spread one-fourth of Aegean herbed butter evenly under the skin of each hen. Sprinkle hens with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  3. Place hens on grill, skin-side down. Cover and grill 25 minutes. Turn hens using tongs; cover and grill 25 minutes longer or until done (internal temp 180°F).
