Place frozen Cornish game hen on top of the onions. Drizzle the remaining Tbsp of olive oil on the bird. Rough chop the garlic and place half on top of the bird and the rest, let fall in the pot. Season the bird with salt, pepper and garlic & onion seasoning. Top the bird with dried or fresh rosemary.
- Add a 1/4 cup of water or white wine to the pot. Cook on low heat setting for 6 hours or until the legs begin to fall away from body.
