So I've had this sitting in my freezer for a couple months now and I've finally decided to do something with it. I was thinking of throwing it in the slow cooker with maybe some sauce, onion, and some other random things. Do you guys have any experience with Cornish hen? What should I do?

>> No.14066211

Put a stick of butter and some ice cubes inside it

Then drop it directly into a deep fryer while it's still frozen

>> No.14066233

It's been defrosted for a bit now so I don't know if that'll work. I will keep that in mind if I ever decide to have another go at it. Sounds interesting.

I'm joking just in case you're that dumb, it'll explode

Oh fuck lmao I'm retarded. Thanks for helping a brainlet out

I threw an ice cube into hot oil as a teenager. It was definitely interesting.

Good way to fuck someone's shit up indeed.

I've decided to roast it in the oven with ample seasoning for 6-8 hrs at the advice of a relative who is a much more talented chef than I. So I'll try that and see what happens. I'll leave the deep frier bombs for another time.

A chicken for kings, to be sure.

>6-8 hours
What the fuck?

Just spatchcock and roast at high heat (at least 400F) for an hour. Honestly probably not even that long since it's a game hen. You got a temperature prove?

>> No.14067123

Thinking back, the suggestion of 6-8 hours seemed off for a small game hen so at the three hour mark I checked on it and the whole thing is perfectly cooked and juicy with no pink area to be found. Thanks /ck/, you saved my chicken.

With this the hen is finished. It ended up not needing as much time as I was initially led to believe which is unsurprising given its size. I sampled some and it tastes absolutely divine, I honestly can't believe I made this given that I'm not a good cook. I'm quite proud of it and will certainly try this again sometime.

Damn that looks really good. What temp was it at?

>> No.14068448

I heated the oven up to 400 then immediately dropped it to 250, after which I put it in

Same way our baguettes are still French. All things are possible when you lie.

Thanks OP, I saw your thread last night and it was the inspiration I needed. Hope your bird turns out good!

It refers to a breed of chicken, not it's place of origin.

I'm glad I was of some help! It turned out delicious and my family loved it. Your chicken looks awesome!

Looks tasty anon, good job!

It's a little small and lean for the slow cooker, but it could work. I like to roast them quickly in a hot oven, especially spatchcocked. Although a slow cooker could work fine, too.
