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.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.

1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
