My phone is going off with calls and texts regarding the holidays. Everyone is trying to get dates and times set as well as who is going where.

With so much going on I wanted to make my list and check it twice. I also want to make sure that the meals I am serving to guests who may be staying awhile are easy and don’t take away from my visitation time!

Enter a protein that I think most of us may not know how to prepare but that offers amazing flavor and an elegant meal for any occasion.

Pairing them with the Constellation Wine variety, Ravage Cabernet Sauvignon, makes them an elegant choice as well!

Shop the frozen section and find the 6 pack of the Tyson® All Natural Premium Cornish Hens. I found mine on an end cap. I turned around and, in the middle of the store, on a pallet, was the Constellation Wine variety I wanted, Ravage Cabernet Sauvignon. I don’t drink a whole lot but when I do, I like a wine that is easy to drink and that enhances the recipe I am making. Ravage Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with the Cornish game hens!

Now that you have your supplies on hand, let’s talk about the easiest recipe ever. It really is amazing how beautiful the Slow Cooker Wild Rice Stuffed Cornish Game Hen comes out. You have the option of adding the wine into the recipe for a richer flavor or to use water or chicken broth and just serve it on the side. I added the wine in because I love the warm flavor on a protein that can absorb it well.  It will give the hens a slightly purple hue but the taste is amazing!

    Do the game hens need to be thawed before starting, or does 8 hours of low heat cooking thaw and cook?

      Hi Mike, You can do them from frozen, I think mine were about 50% thawed. You just have to be able to stuff the rice into the cavity. If you go from frozen, rinse the end with cold water and remove the innards. Once that is done you can stuff and cook on low for the 8 hours. If you don’t go from frozen, you can cut the time to 5-6 hours.

    I think the recipe should say “wild rice mix,” since the photo shows white rice (and yellow rice) as well.

      Hmm,,,, I just use the wild rice from the store – one container. But I can see the relevance 🙂
