Spicy Crockpot Hens

Spicy Crockpot Hens

2 Cornish hens
2 cups water
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup of butter, melted
3/4 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp ginger
3/4 tsp ground thyme
3/4 tsp cinnamon

Thaw hens overnight. Wash hens in warm water. Mix remaining ingredients together in butter. Baste hens with 1/2 of mixture. Fill crockpot with water and stock. Place hens inside crockpot. Spread remaining mixture over hens. Turn on low. Cook for 8 hours or until done. When removing from crockpot, be careful. Hens will be very tender and tend to fall off the bones.

Notes: This is indeed very tender. And nicely spiced. Leftovers make a good sandwich, or so I've been told. I just ate them straight off the carcass myself. Yum.

The meat was tender, juicy and just lightly spiced. Delicious. And the leftovers did indeed work well in a sandwich.
