Ingredients
2 PERDUE® Fresh Whole Cornish Hens, Twin Pack
Salt and ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon New Mexican ground red chile
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 lime, cut into wedges
Instructions
1 Prepare outdoor grill for cooking or preheat broiler. Split hens in half lengthwise.

TIP: New Mexican ground red chile is available in the dried spice section of many supermarkets. Commercial chili powder, which contains cumin and other spices, is an acceptable substitute.
2 In small bowl, combine salt, pepper and ground red chile. Rub hens with oil and rub in salt, pepper and chili mixture.
3 Grill or broil 20 to 25 minutes, turning 2 to 3 times during cooking until hens are a rosy brown and juice run clear when thigh is pierced. A meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh should register 180°F. Serve hens with lime wedges.
