Cajun Cornish Hens

Comment on this recipe

Since my husband, Cedric, cooks a lot of cajun food, we have the cajun rub already made up and it is so easy to just sprinkle on the birds.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dryed thyme, crushed
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 Cornish hens, 1 to 1-1/2 pounds each
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Blend the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl. Wash and dry the Cornish hens. Brush the hens with olive oil. Season the hens with the seasoning mixture. Place the hens in a baking pan and let stand for about 5 minutes. Bake hens about 45 to 60 minutes. Serve with wild rice and lima beans. Makes 4 servings.
