DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Inject the breasts of the hens with the injection sauce (contamination prevention - always pour a portion for the current use into a separate container so that the injector needle never touches marinade that will go back into the refrigerator after it has touched raw poultry).
  • Coat the inside of each hen with Bayou Magic sausage mix (this ingredient can be a bit hard to come by outside of South LA, but worth the search for those who like things spicy; great on other wild game as well).
  • Sprinkle each hen with poultry magic, then sprinkle with paprika for color.
  • Bake until fully cooked: 50-60 minutes (about 20 minutes per pound).
