Tried it - Loved it. 5 Stars Made it with a baking hen in the crockpot - threw it together in less than 10 minutes - left for the day came back 9 hours later and it was tender and fabulous fell CLEAN off the bone - fell apart like in a stew, which I liked. (If want it in whole, cook for less time). Best part is it had that delicate but distinct seasoning flavor like you get in a nice restaurant - unfortunately for my dient I can't stop eating it....:-( I had all 5 ingredients in the house already. One thing to keep in mind - the seasoning gets washed away in all the juice - I drained off a good bit of juice each time I prepared a serving. and i re-dashed the seasonings on when i reheated in microwave - it really wakes the flavor up - this is sooooo delicious - - AND FAST AND SIMPLE!!! Tastes like you spent a lot of time when you really didn't!! Sending this one on to all the women in my family!

5 star all the way.I did add two heads of garlic to roast along with the hen. The hen was so moist and tasty a definite do again recipe. We don't have Cornish hen often so it is a real pleasure when I do make one to find a recipe that we enjoyed this much!
