Season hens with salt and pepper. Place hens in pan, skin side down. Brush with half of honey mixture. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Remove pan and turn over hens. Brush with remaining honey mixture. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until internal temperature of hen reaches 180°. Transfer to plate. Drain drippings from pan skimming off the fat. Pour into a gravy boat.
