Duck, Grouse, Pheasant or other Alorange recipe:

Chucker Alorange'

2 whole wild game breasts (cut in half) -- skin removed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 small oranges -- peeled and sectioned
1 medium apple -- cut into 1/2" pieces
1 medium onion -- cut into eights
1 can (6oz) frozen orange juice concentrate -- thawed


Directions:

Season bird with salt and pepper. Place the bird, fruit, and onion in a crockpot. Pour thawed orange juice over all. Cover; cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Discard fruit and onion. Strain and thicken sauce if desired.

Wild bird is obviously a bit lean to cook like chicken. I have found that this works great on Duck, Grouse and Pheasant. Havent tried it on chuckar. Just changed the name for you...Oh yeah, I throw all them little legs in the pot too, to good to waste! Serve over rice, some fresh steamed veggies, garlic bread and wine, you are good to go!

I shot some of both species last year. I cleaned them, plucked them, rinced them off in cold water, dipped them in milk and egg and floured them, put them in the dutch oven with a little bacon fat and Johnny's seasoning on the edge of the cookfire........... Simply great.
The first bird may get the worm, but it's the second rat that gets the cheese.

Sounds good. I have wanted to try my dutch oven with grouse at deer camp, but I always am out hunting until dark, and it seems too late to toss this into a new fire.

How long did they take to cook?

Iceman, doesn't take long. Depends on how hot the fire is. Less time than chicken...... I don't really recall, I just kept a eye on them, and they were great.
