My son brought me home 4 pheasants this weekend. I searched for recipes that sounded good because I never cooked on before. What I found did sound good to me but wouldn't to certain people in my family. So I decided to be creative and this is what I came up with. It turned out to be exquisite in my Everyone in the family loved it and my son was proud that he provided the meat for an awesome meal. I think chicken would taste just as good done this way.
