  • 2 c Dried bread cubes
  • 1/2 c Celery; sliced
  • 1/4 c Onion; chopped
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Pepper
  • 1/4 ts Marjoram leaves

 Directions

APRICOT GLAZE
1/2 c Apricot preserves
1/2 c Margarine
1/2 ts Marjoram leaves

Heat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, stir together all stuffing ingredients
EXCEPT preserves, margarine and wine.

In a small saucepan, melt preserves, margarine, and wine or chicken broth.
Stir into stuffing mix.

Stuff hens, and secure opening with a toothpick. Tuck under wings of hen.
Place hens, breast side up, in a roasting pan.

Bake for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a pan, combine all the glaze ingredients, cooking over medium
heat till melted, about 2-3 minutes. Brush hens with half the sauce after
about 1 hour of cooking. Continue to brush sauce on, every 15 - 20 minutes.

Continue baking hens for 40 - 50 minutes, or until hens are fork tender.
Loosely cover with foil if hens are browning too quickly. Per serving: 1849
