Smothered Dove

This simple recipe allows the dove's natural, rich flavor to stand out. Serves six.

  • 12 quail
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of sherry wine
  • salt and pepper


Season the birds with salt and pepper, and then brown the birds in the butter, using a heavy skillet. Place the birds in a baking dish, and set aside.

Add the flour to the butter in the skillet, and stir to combine. Slowly add the chicken broth, sherry, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, and pour over the birds in the baking dish.

Cover the birds and bake at 350F for about 45 minutes or an hour, or until the birds are clearly done. Serve on a bed of rice with some savory vegetables. A glass of crisp white wine - like a Sauvignon Blanc or dry Pino Grigio will be delightful.
