WOW! That does sound really good! Yummm...

Along the same line...
I have always made Cornish Game Hens, marinated & then glazed during cooking with Frozen OJ Concentrate (undiluted)... and roasted in the oven at 300F til done...
Brush with the OJ Concentrate every 20 minutes or so while cooking... (NOT the same OJ that you used for marinating!)
takes two small cans (the little 6oz.(?) cans) of Frozen OJ, one to marinade & one to glaze...
I throw a sliced medium onion in the cavity during the roasting... Yummm again!
nothing else needed except some S&P...
comes out very moist and tangy! and not so sweet as to be overpowering...

I may have to try adding some bourbon to this one!

Sounds very similar to a turkey recipe I found and made last year, for a brined turkey, brushed with OJ, with orange pieces inside. It was delish! I will try to look for it!

Regarding cooking a turkey, my husband (who is the "real" chef in the family) accidentally cooked a bird upside down one year and discovered later from a chef friend of ours that she always cooks them that way, i.e., the juices run down into the breast making it far more juicy and tender. Also, as much as all of you health concious people will blow a gasket with my next comment, coat the bird with good ole mayo if you want it to turn out juicy, moist and golden brown.

A lot of recipes talk about starting the bird out upside down. Makes sense to me!
