“My grandmother cooked very easy and delicious recipe for the guys during quail season. Pheasant can be substituted for the quail.” - by Jen Lee
Original recipe yields 8 quail
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat the shortening in a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat.
- Season the quail with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste. Place the flour in a shallow dish; roll the quail in the flour.
- Working in batches, brown the quail on all sides in the preheated shortening. Place the browned quail in a large roasting pan or casserole dish; pour the water over the quail and cover with aluminum foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C), taken in the thickest part of the thigh. Spoon the sour cream over the quails, allow the sour cream to melt before serving.

"I was happy to find a simple recipe to get the quail to the oven fast after my husband cleaned them. I added ground mustard and parsley just because I had them. Turned out good and smelled so good my..." See more son didn't wait for them to find a plate before he pulled a leg off. Sour cream didn't melt but no one seemed to care. Will be making again for a church function soon."
