It's pretty simple how I fix my pheasant. All I cook are the pheasant breast. I fillet the meat off the breast and soak it in salt water to draw the blood out of the meat. I then drain it and put the meat into a zip lock bag that is filled with Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing. I let it marinate over night in the refrigerator. I then cook it on my gas grill. I'll fix some Uncle Ben's wild rice & brown gravy to pour over the pheasant breast. I usually cook about twice what I'll eat and make sandwiches for lunch the next day. It's easy to fix and tastes good. :D

Find a good recipe for chicken cacciatorre and substitute pheasant. I especially like pheasant thighs for this because they are full of flavor and not as dry as breast. Leg meat is also good, but the tendons make for messy eating. I usually skin my birds and fillet the breasts because plucking to save the skin just ain't worth it to me. Years back I used to pluck birds that were lightly shot, but no more. But skin on pheasant makes it even more flavorful I think.

Here's my favorite and so easy to make:

PHEASANT IN CREAM SAUCE

1-2 Pheasants, quartered or cut into serving pieces (filleted breast pieces & de-boned thighs work best)
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
½ - 1 cup Sour Cream
1 – 4oz can sliced mushrooms
¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
¼ cup chopped onion

Preheat oven to 350* F. Rub pheasant pieces with salt and place them in baking dish. In separate bowl mix together the mushroom soup, sour cream, mushrooms, parmesan cheese and onion. Spread this mixture over the pheasant and bake in oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until tender. Baste occasionally with sauce during baking.

This is a three-step process, but time tested. Not sure it will work for Blessed Girl (OP), but it has yielded good results for me.

A) Clean birds thoroughly.

B) Give to wife or girlfriend, depending on circumstances.

C) Eat. A compliment and admiring pat on the backside will be appreciated. :mrgreen:

Substitute them for chicken in any recipe.
