Place hens, breast side up, in a roasting pan.

Meanwhile, in a pan, combine all the glaze ingredients, cooking over medium heat until melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Brush hens with half the sauce after about 1 hour of cooking.

Continue to brush sauce on, every 15 to 20 minutes.

Continue baking hens for 40 to 50 minutes, or until hens are fork tender.

Loosely cover with foil if hens are browning too quickly.
