  3. Bake covered, for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove lid and turn rabbit pieces over. Squeeze some juice from the orange over. Return to the oven, uncovered, for 30 minutes, or until rabbit is tender. Serve with sliced orange and mashed potato. Bon Appetite!!!

Very good and easy to prepare. We also used 1 sliced onion instead of 4 small ones and omitted the orange juice. We'll be making it again.

Delicious! I had to cook the rabbit 2 hrs because I doubled the recipie. I served the thickened pan juices over angel hair pasta as in a previous post. I did not notice the wine at all, hardly, and I hate wine. This is a new favorite for my rabbit dishes. I bet the prep would work great in a slow cooker.


My whole family loved this recipe, We're on the low carb diet so I had to omit the orange, but it was great even without it! The only things I did different were to use a sliced onion instead of the whole onions. I also browned the onion and the rabbit pieces in the bacon drippings. I thickened the sauce with low carb thickener. Next time I might add a tablespoon or so of low carb orange marmalade to get that orange flavor. Great recipe!
