Root-Beer Glazed Game Hen

I was In the mood for something different, new, exciting. Then all of a sudden inspiration sparks, I had a grand idea! It was a bright sun shiny Sunday afternoon, and I’m going to prepare for my family the most amazing meal they’ve ever tasted today! Ok It wasn’t exactly that thrilling, I actually happened to have a few Game Hen in the freezer and I’ve grown tired of the plain ole “roasted’ version so yup, took a quick around at what I had on hand and came up with this. The recipe that I can up with is pretty simple, a quick reduction, a few other ingredients and voila! I’m AWESOME!
