  1. PREPARATION: Chop basil, rosemary, bay leaves, garlic. Cut out cornish hens' backbones and split birds in half.
  2. Blend together herbs, oil, garlic, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a blender until finely chopped, then rub all over poussins.
  3. Prepare grill for indirect-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas); see Grilling Procedure .
