Mogambo! (Baked Chicken)

This is an elegant cornish game hen dish for two people. Mogambo is savory soul food. You won't find the recipe posted anywhere else on the planet because I am the inventor of this dish which is the end product of three years of meticulous trial and error and subsequent tweaking to achieve just the right balance of flavors. Where does the name come from? It's the name of my favorite classic movie, starring Clark Gable, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly (color, 1953). And it is also an acronym for MOLASSES (MO), GAME HEN (GAM), and, BOUILLON (BO). Mogambo! The dish takes a little time and effort but the result is well-worth it.
