DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat oil in a pot large enough to fit a Cornish hen comfortably, to about 350 degrees.
  • Thoroughly wash and pat Cornish hen dry to avoid unnecessary spatter, and carefully ease into hot oil.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes on each side until you see that it is turning slightly golden brown around the edges and crispy.
  • Remove and place on cooling rack.
  • In a small bowl, prepare glaze by mixing together first 4 ingredients, adding red pepper flakes to your heat preference. Baste entire hen liberally with the glaze.
  • Pop in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes or until it gets crispy.
  • Flip over, and re-baste bottom of hen, and put back in oven for another 8 minutes to crisp up the other side.
  • Let rest before serving. You can cut into quarters for 2 servings, or serve whole.
  • Serve alongside steamed veggies and/or Jasmine rice for a complete meal!
