The market near my house where we buy our carne asada sells marinated cornish hens.
We tried them and liked them.
We weren't really sure how to cook them.
We ended up wrapping each one in foil and cooked like 45 minutes then uncovered them and cooked another 15 minutes or so with the foil open.
They cooked through and tasted good but the skin didn't crisp. The meat was really juicy, but I would have preferred a crisp skin.
The guy at the market says I could grill them, but I wasn't sure what to do.
The hens are about 1.5 pounds each -- give or take. I'd like to use the grill or the oven/broiler.
So, anyone have a suggestion on how to cook them? They are preseasoned, so I don't need a recipe -- just looking for cooking instructions.
Thanks so much!!!!!!
