This is a family favorite,all my kids,grandkids,and great grandkids loves rabbit.(in and out of the pot lol)I've cooked venison, bear,squirrel,turtle,quail,pheasant,and squib. No raccoon,snake,or opossum,I have to draw the line on them. Hope you give this a try even if you use chicken. NOTE: We raise our own rabbits and dress them when they are 16-18 weeks old. We have to supply all our family with rabbit.
