Another food I never ate or prepared before moving to Alabama. Can't imagine now not eating these sweet little birds. Yummy.

dove, dressed and cleaned
6 Tbsp
butter, unsalted
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
2 c
chicken stock
1/2 c
sherry, pale and dry
kosher salt and black pepper to taste


1Season 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.
2Slowly 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.
