Help me with my cornish hen?

We are making a Father's Day supper....going to celebrate it tonight.

It is very hot and humid today and I didn't want to start the oven, so I put the cornish hen with carrots and tators and barley in the crock pot. It was on high for a good 3 1/2 hours. The internal temp of the bird is over 180* but the bird is grey-ish colored.

I shoved him in a small roaster with some water and a little butter, and put it in the oven under 425* to see if he will brown.

Any other suggestions or should this work????? I'm frantic!

THANKS!

I would expect it to work. Did it?

Angie,

As Andy said, I would expect it to "work." A slow cooker is unfortunately not good at browning meat, but it will make it taste good, given the right ingredients. If I were to cook anything in a slow cooker, and then want to brown it, I'd probably stick it under the broiler briefly to do so without further cooking it. (Very much.)

Glad it worked out for you.
