I’m such a huge fan of easy dinners. That’s why I love my slow cooker so much! Josh has started with wrestling and we are busy with the holidays, choir practice, and you know, that whole drill. Basically, it’s been busy. Well, busier than normal.
So my slow cooker has made itself a permanent home on my counter top the past few weeks. It’s been so nice to have something ready when we get back. Not to mention, my house smells so good when I walk in the front door! The other night Joshua had his Holiday Choir Concert and so I really wanted to do something easy for dinner.
When I was at Kroger, I noticed in the freezer section that they had packages of Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens. I’ve never made them in the slow cooker, but I thought that they would make the perfect after concert dinner. Normally I roast a chicken, but that’s a lot of food for just two people! So I really like the idea of buying a pack of Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens! In fact, I’m not sure why it took me so long to to start buying them!
I did a simple (but so tasty!) seasoned hen in the slow cooker and served it on top of wild rice. It was so amazing! And Joshua thought it was pretty awesome that he got a whole hen all to himself. He’s 12 and eats more than I’ve ever seen someone eat before!
While this dinner was super easy (even for a weeknight dinner!) it is still a great idea for a holiday dinner. Two hens will fit nicely in your slow cooker, so if you have a small family like us it’s a perfect way to have a fancy dinner without having to buy a 12 – 15 pound piece of meat!
What is your favorite thing to cook in the slow cooker? Next time you have to try Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens!
