Remove seasoning packet from rice mix; use 1 teaspoon seasonings per hen; rub inside and out.

Place hens, breast side up in a shallow roasting pan; truss, if desired.

Pour chicken broth and 1/2 cup water into pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet. Add green onions, mushrooms and rice packet from mix. Saute, stirring frequently.

Slowly add 1-1/4 cups water, remaining seasonings from packet, wine and bay leaves; bring to a boil.

Pour rice mixture into roasting pan, making sure that rice does not rest on top of hens. Brush hens with remaining butter. Cover loosely with foil.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. and bake an additional 45 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.

Serve hens on a bed of rice.
