Essentially good, very tender and moist recipe. Could be a bit spicier and browning the hens in a pan would improve them a lot IMO.

Nice recipe for the slow cooker. I browned my hens first and then let them cook all day. I agree the recipe could be spicier. However, they did look lovely! I cut each hen in half after they cooked and they looked very nice on the plate :-)
