I love my slow cooker and I'm not afraid to say it. Anyone else relying heavily on their slow cooker to get meals on the table this month? I've got enough stress without having to worry about getting meals prepared by 6:00. I can through dinner in the crock pot at 10 and voila - dinners ready by 5.
I chose Cornish Hens for my slow cooker last week because we are in the middle of celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas. You know - 3 French Hens? Well, my hens were Cornish and not French but you get the idea.
Slow Cooker Cornish Hens
2 Cornish Game Hen Chicken
8 oz. Orange Juice
1 Sprig Rosemary
1 Handful fresh Parsley
1 Tablespoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Pepper
1 Fresh Orange, Sliced
2 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Pour juice mixture over hens. Place rosemary and parsley around hens.
Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours.
Place under broiler to brown the hens.
Since I could only fit 2 hens in my slow cooker and I definitely needed 3 to stick with the 3 French Hens theme - I roasted one of my hens in the oven. It turned out just as good as the crock pot hens.
Stay turned for my entire 12 Days of Christmas post. You will certainly get a good laugh at how we ATE our way through the 12 Days of Christmas.
