RECIPE: LITTLE CHICKENS.... fancy!

Stuffed Cornish Game Hens w/ a citrus baste

Who says you can't cook to impress in your slow cooker. This recipe is GREAT for an elegant dinner or to celebrate that special occasion. A common misconception of the game hens is their price and availability. You might be surprised to know that even major market chains (Stop and Shop, Shaws, Whole Foods, etc) carry these little birds at a reasonable price.

4 Cornish game hens
8 oz. stuffing mix
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tbs. honey
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. orange zest
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Rinse hens
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper (inside and out)
  • Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions
  • Stuff the birds
  • Place the hens neck ends down in crock pot
  • Combine all remaining ingredients
  • Baste hens with the sauce and pour remainder in pot
  • Cook on LOW for 5 to 7 hours (baste hens once or twice during cooking)
ENJOY!
