Pre-Seasoned Cornish Hens

MRyerson06 Jan 10, 2012 07:37 AM

I didn't realize the cornish hens I bought are actually pre-seasoned and in a bag, from Perdue.
I have never bought anything pre-seaoned before and I'm concerned about these being crazy-salty.
The directions on the back say to cook them in the bags they come in, but won't that prevent crispy-ness?

Has anyone made these before? Or does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm going to try to make these tonight so any advice would be appreciated!

      I would roast them with the temperature you normally do it... I rarely follow package directions for meat :)

      How I do it, is I butterfly my cornish hen and blast it at 500F...

      I can't say how salty it is going to be since I've never had it.
