In a mixing bowl or large ziplock bag, combine soy sauce, five spice powder, honey, peppers, sesame oil and garlic along with the cornish hen and mix well. Marinate the Cornish hens preferably overnight, but a 4-6 hours will probably still do.
Preheat oven for 350 degrees. Place in baking pan and bake hens in middle rack with skin facing up. In the meantime make the scallion oil by heating the cooking oil and when hot, add the green onions with a sprinkle of salt and remove from heat and set aside.
Bake for about a half an hour or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (or pierce the chicken-juice should be clear, not bloody) . The baking pan will contain the juices and marinade. DO NOT throw this out! Take the juices and add a little soy sauce, squeeze of lime, and garlic chili sauce or Thai peppers for a great dipping sauce.
For extra crispiness, you can quickly sear the skin on high heat on a heavy skillet right before serving. Top ga roti with a bit of scallion green and serve with tomatoes, cucumber, and rice.
