Afghans are some of the world’s best grill masters, as this dish aptly demonstrates. The marinade uses familiar ingredients, many of which you probably have on hand, but the birds come out so exotic tasting, succulent, and flavorful that your guests will think they’re dining in a great ethnic restaurant. You can get away with marinating the game hens for only eight hours, but after the full twenty-four hours, the hens will taste their best.
