Brined and Grilled Cornish Hens (Poussin, little chickens)

Total time: 60 minutes   plus 10 earlier
     The poussin that we get are very young chickens and weigh about 18oz (550gr) each.  They are perfect individual servings (with a snack leftover).  If you get larger birds one may be enough; you could cut it in half before cooking, if you like.

Note:  Nutrition info assumes 50% of marinade is eaten and none of the brine.

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.
