  3. Remove hens from marinade, shaking off any excess, place hens on a plate, skin-side up. Discard remaining marinade. Season skin-side of hens with salt and pepper
  4. Cook hens in a large skillet until brown on both sides, turning occasionally, until skin is brown. Place hens in a buttered Dutch oven and cover.
