This was awesome. I made this for my father for father's day and it was juicy and crispy. If you are looking for a cornish hen differnt from the traditional oven baked this is the one. I did use cajun seasoning and garlic salt and I let the seasonings set on the hen for about 1 1/2 hours before I deep fried it. I also covered the deep fryer with a lid while frying it. This is the best!!!! Thanks Tina.
