What are game hens?????? I have some quail in my oven for tonight. They are tiny, but all dark meat which I love. I made them a couple of times years ago. One time we flattened them and grilled them Maybe that's what I should have done today.................. doing them in my grill pan might have been good. However, three of the little birds are in the oven and I will cook some broccoli and cauliflower to go with the birds.
