    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (680.38 g) Cornish hens
    • 0-2 to taste vegetable shortening (for deep-frying)
    • 0-2 to taste oil (for deep-frying)
    • 0-2 to taste salt
    • 0-2 to taste pepper, freshly ground
    • 0-2 to taste lemon, wedges (for serving)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Don't fill your stockpot more than half full with shortening/oil, to allow for the inevitable boiling up when the hens are added.
    2. 2
      Also, be sure the hens are at room temperature so the fat temperature doesn't drop dramatically from the shock of an ice-cold bird.
    3. 3
      Rinse the hens and pat completely dry, inside and out, with paper towels. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Place a large wire cake rack over a jelly roll pan/cookie sheet.
    5. 5
      In a stockpot, melt vegetable shortening over high heat to a depth of 2 to 3 inches and heat it to 375 degrees F.
    6. 6
      Carefully put 1 Cornish hen in the hot shortening. Deep fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown.

      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.
