Grilled Cornish Hens with Apricot-Mustard Glaze

Sweet apricot preserves, tangy Champagne vinegar, earthy parsley, and refreshing mint mingle in this delectable glaze. Peach preserves are also a tasty option; just make sure and opt for chunkier preserves (rather than jelly), to ensure the glaze adheres better to the hens.

The glaze also works on chicken thighs beautifully. Serve with grilled fennel bulb quarters and couscous for a stunning meal.
