"This was the main course for Thanksgiving dinner for hubby and me. It was wonderful!! I only used one game hen and cut the amount of butter just a smidge, but otherwise followed the recipe perfectly..." See more. I did the 4 hour version, but I see myself using the 8 hour on low for work days. Coming home to this would be excellent! Joychick...thanks for making our "easy, stress-free Thanksgiving" even easier, more stress-free and dog-gone tasty!!! Heartfelt gratitude for the post. ~campergramma~"
"So incredibly easy to make! Served it Superbowl night wth a steamed brocolli/carrot mix (as a healthier alternative to chips, pizza, etc.) Made a few alterations--use a low-sodium chix broth and unsal..." See moreted butter, but only half of what was recommended. Use freshly squeezed lemon juice and some lemon zest in the seasoning (rub). Cooked on high for 4-hours, ever so tender."
