I have quite a few receipes that I have come up with over the years for pheasants, unfortunately I am about 1200 miles from my kitchen right now so I can't get to them quite yet, but I do know my favorite!!

Ingredients:

4-6 pheasant breasts
thinly sliced ham
shredded cheddar cheese
1-2 10.5oz cans of cream of mushroom soup
flour
salt & pepper to taste


Take your deboned breasts and put them between two pieces of plastic wrap and with a mallet pound them out till they are nice and thin no more than 1/2" (I like to try and get closer to 1/4" if I can).

Take the one of the flattened breasts and place a slice or two of ham and then a layer of the cheese leaving a space around the edges so you can tuck it in to seal it up. Roll them up as well as you can doing your best to close up the edges and secure with a toothpick or two. Repeat on the remaining breasts.

Once all the breasts are filled and rolled up lightly coat them in the lightly seasoned flour. Preheat a pan and with about 1 tbl spoon of olive oil and place breasts into pan to sear. Sear each breast quickly on all sides and then turn the heat to low. Add cream of mushroom soup and place lid on pan. Let cook for about an hour or so.

I like to serve this with wild rice and a nice Pinot.

I love cutting them into 3 to 4 inch pieces, rolling them in mustard and throw them in bread crumbs and toss them in the turkey fryer. Mustard isn't a strong taste, my wife thought she wouldn't like them because of the mustard, but it really brings the flavor out. Throw some tobasco sauce and enjoy.

Take your crock pot and cut up some celery and layer that on the bottom. Then add some pheasant breasts, I usually use 2-3 birds or 4-6 breasts. Then take a bowl and mix in 2 cups wild rice (cooked) with a can of mushrooms a can of cream of mushroom soup and a half cup of milk. Mix together and pour that on the pheasant and turn on low for 4-6 hours. Fantastic. Saw this on a website for chicken and used pheasant and it was great. I am going to add carrots and peppers and onions next time and see how it goes.

I like to do pheasant in the crockpot also. I layer the bottom with potato chunks, baby carrots, and a little onion. I'd love to add mushrooms too, but my husband would spend 3 days picking them back out, so those would have to be on the side. Add the breasts. Season with a little McCormick Montreal Chicken seasoning, a little salt, and ground pepper. Top that with a can of mushroom soup and some red cooking wine--around 1/4 cup.

The other night, I baked skinless chicken breasts rolled in crushed Durkee Fried onions. Boy was that good, and I'm sure it would work with pheasant too.

I know a lot of people don't save pheasant legs, but I do and here is a great recipe for them. Save a bunch and put them in a crockpot and cover with water. Put on low for about 6 hours or until the meat just falls off the bone. Take them out and pull the meat off the bones, the legs always have a TON of tendons in them and this stiffens them up and they are pretty easy to remove. at this point, I always package them up in bags and vacuum seal them and freeze them for later use. When I do use them they are always shredded from getting pulled off the bones so I put them in a pan with 2 stalks of celery cut up, about 1/4 onion diced and fry them up. I then add a can of cream of chicken soup and heat up. Makes delicious cream of pheasant to either put on buns (which I do and is delicious) or put on top of biscuits. Great way to use up all the bird.

We use the same recipe as scmelik posted, however we fry it in a few inches of oil and we don't add the soup. It comes out like looking like chicken Kiev.

This is how I normally cook it. In a crock pot surrounded by Bavarian style kraut and apple wedges.

I'm new to the site but I figure I would start out with one of my recipes:

Chipotle Pepper Cream Sauce w/ Chicken or Pheasant

3 Red Bell Peppers
3 Cloves of Garlic
3 oz. Chipotle Peppers
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 tbspn Oregano
1 tbspn Italian Seasoning
8 oz Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 lb Chicken Breasts or Pheasant
2 oz Vegetable Oil
1 qt Heavy Whipping Cream

Pasta of your choice, Penne or Tortellini works best

Cut and trim Bell Peppers into pieces. Peel Garlic Cloves put all into a frying pan with the Vegetable oil. Cook all ingredients to al dente (cook until soft, but still semi crispy) By the way this will smell awesome! After cooking to al dente, put in blender with a little bit of Heavy Whipping Cream, Chipotle Peppers and puree until completely liquified. After liquified add the can of Diced Tomatoes, Oregano, Italian Seasoning and blend well with sauce. Return to frying pan and put on low heat. Add the balance of the Heavy Whipping Cream, and add the Cream Cheese and Parmesan Cheese and simmer until the sauce is thick enough for your likening.

While the sauces is thickening, cook your Chicken or Pheasant and season. I like using something that has Rosemary to give it a little bit sweeter taste. You can also cook the pasta of your choice. After all is completed, trim the poultry to bite size pieces and stir into sauce.
