- 1 (1 1/2-pound) Cornish hens
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup hoisin
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup scallions, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a very deep pot, bring enough oil to fill the pot by 2/3 of the way. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.
Add the hen slowly to the oil and fry for 8 to 10 minutes on each side until golden brown and have reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Remove the hen from the oil and drain on a paper towel.
Place in oven for about 7 minutes. Take out. Flip over and brush reserved hoisin sauce on flipped side. Place in oven for another 7 minutes.
