Serve over stuffing. To prepare stuffing, bring
water, rice, 2 tbsp. butter and Better Than

simmer over low heat for 20 minutes; remove from
heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, melt
remaining butter in a large skillet . Stir in stuffing
mix; cook and spoon onto a platter and top with
game hens. Finish off with a squeeze of fresh
orange juice on each halved game hen from
remaining wedges.
