Cornish game hens seem so upscale. These require some effort in preparation, but the results are worth it.

Recipe Ingredients:
3 Cornish game hens
2 tablespoons salt
1 1/4 cups dry white wine
1 cup MAGGI Seasoning Sauce
1 cup peeled, finely chopped fresh ginger
2 shallots, finely chopped
8 cups water

6 whole star anise pods
3 cinnamon sticks
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese five spice
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
Juice from 1 lemon

Cooking Directions:
1 – Cut hens into quarters and sprinkle both sides with salt. Let stand for 10 minutes in a sieve. Rinse thoroughly.
