1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.Mix all the dried herbs and spices and sprinkle evenly over the hens.
3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the hens on both sides, about 10 minutes. Place the hens in a roasting pan. Roast for 30-35 min, or until juices run clear.
4. Return the skillet with the pan juices to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and scallions and cook until tender and fragrant. Then, add the broth, juice, and honey and cook until reduced over medium-low heat, about 20 min.
5. In the last 10 min of roasting the hens, brush with the glaze. Allow the hens to rest 5 min before serving.

    This looks really good, I will probably use normal chicken instead of game hens but close enough.
