Paleo Cornish Game Hens... Crock Pot Style!

Okay... this was awesome and easy! I knew I was going to be home late, so I put a couple of these little guys in the crock pot on my way out the door this morning. It really was THAT fast. The best part was that I had my very own little hen to eat when I got home! I did use my fingers a lot (felt very Paleo). It sure was messy ... in a tender, delicious, flavorful, meat falling off the bone, kind of way! Have some extra napkins handy! Hope you enjoy!

2 Cornish game hens
1 C baby carrots
1 yellow onions
3 stalks celery
poultry seasoning
garlic powder
ground black pepper
ground sage

Place vegetables in the bottom of the crock pot. Rub seasonings on the game hens and add them to the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Yep... that's IT. Go to work, go to CrossFit, come home and eat! Serve this with a side salad to complete the meal and add more carbs!
Enjoy! :-)

Yum. I do this a lot with whole chicken but I'll have to try this. I wonder if my kids will be like "cool I can eat my own little bird!" or "gross, I have to eat my own little bird!"

Anyway, thanks for the recipe. I love your blog. It's very helpful to me :)

Do you add any liquid to the crock pot? Chicken stock, water, etc.?

For a few hours I have been reading and looking for Paleo Cornish Game Hens, Crock Pot Style and is amazing and disturbing how many blogs related to generic viagra are in the web. But anyways, thanks for sharing your inputs, they are really helpful.
Have a nice day
