Let me recommend...

...stuffing the cavaties of Rock Cornish Hens with quartered limes, and roasting the bird-lettes breast-side down for at least 3/4 of their total cooking time - then flipping them breast-side up for the last portion of time. Remove the limes promptly, so they don't bitter the meat.

The juice from the limes permeates the breast meat, and gives it a wonderful fragrance and -flavor...and there's less chance of food poisoning from under-cooked stuffing, since you're discarding the "stuffing" -- and the citrus juices have natural anti-bacterial properties.
