Slow Cooker Glazed Cornish Hen

Submitted by: TULIPLOVE

Introduction

Got the idea for this on another site. It originally called for 4 whole game hens but I changed this to accomodate a more reasonable portion size. I also broiled the hens first to cut out the fat a bit and make the skin light and crispy. You can skip this step if you are short on time. Thanks Jean for the idea!

    Even though turkey and cornish hen belong basically to the same group i think it would be a good change for thanksgiving day along with turkey and see how family would like the added hen on the table . I have not tried it yet but it sound really good i may try it this weekend thank you. - 11/2/09
