How to Make Alabama Smothered Dove


  1. Season the dove with salt and pepper.

    Melt butter in a heavy skillet and brown the dove.

    Remove the dove to a baking dish.

    Add flour to the butter in the skillet and stir to combine.
  2. Slowly add the chicken broth, sherry, salt and pepper.
    Mix well and pour over the dove.

    Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes - 1 hour or until the quail are done.

    This is very good served over rice with some homemade biscuits.
