    I don't see why you couldn't do the same rub and glazes on chicken breasts with ribs and skin.....my daughter went on a vegetarian kick for six weeks because the night I served cornish hens for dinner we happened to watch the Simpson's episode where Bart killed a bird with his sling shot, it was a little to realistic for her and she went on a meat strike! I lost 20+ lbs. She still won't eat a Cornish hen, but finally she will eat meat (one too many dinners featuring bean burritos, cured her of her veggie obsession) and chicken now. Love this post and will save for future inspiration. toodles, NYM

    Lucky 7. So this is from Woman's Day? I guess this is why a woman's work is never done.
