    Chef Joey Z.'s Note:

    With the Christmas holiday so close I didn't want to do a turkey so I thought I'd try something different. I love the taste of Cornish Hens and with the Mole sauce it was really tasty. I have a 7 quart slow cooker and it was just the right size for this dish. As per DH's request, I used a lot of coco powder in my mole sauce but you can use less.
