“I receive pheasant from my father, who is a hunter, and I'm always trying to think of new ways to cook it up. This was a really nice surprise and easy too. The pheasant could easily be substituted with chicken.”

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the pheasant breasts into a baking dish, and pour in 3/4 cup white wine. Bake in the preheated oven until the pheasant is no longer pink in the center, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Once cool, remove the meat from the bones, and cut into bite sized pieces.
  3. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the fettuccini, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion until it has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, spinach, and pheasant pieces. Cook until the mushrooms have softened, then pour in 1/2 cup of white wine, cover, and cook 5 minutes. Stir in the cream and pesto, and remove from the heat. Place the fettuccini in a serving bowl, pour the pheasant sauce over top, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

This was really yummy, and a great way to use the pheasant from the freezer! We threw in some red bell peppers and thought that was a nice addition.

this is a great dish to make for friends and family. You may want to add a dash of salt an pepper to the chicken and just a dash of salt in the sauce for taste. If your having a dinner party this goes great with the Crostini with mozzarella and tomato
