A quick meal to prepare
starting out with frozen cornish game hens
during mid-morning or at noon on a busy work day
for a quite rewarding dinner...
To serve, cut the hens down the middle, serve with the prepared basmati rice and herbs, along with steamed vegetables removed with a slotted spoon from slow-cooker. ~ Enjoy.
Tips: If you wish to make a gravy from the drippings keep it hot in the slow-cooker. Skim excess oil from the top with a spoon (or use a gravy/oil separator), and make a slurry by whisking 2 tablespoons of cold water with 1 tablespoon of corn starch in a small bowl, then slowly whisk in slurry until gravy has thickened.
You can also do the same with a 3 lb. whole chicken, although thaw it first so you are able to remove the giblets and neck from cavity, then be sure to place the lemon halves inside cavity before cooking.
