    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    The recipe states that it serves 6, but not in my house...six quail would just be an appetizer. Of course, the recipe can be doubled easily to feed hungrier appetites.

      Great recipe for my first time preparing/eating quail. Flavorful and easy to make. However, I wasn't sure how to 'split them down the back', so I just used the breast meat - followed the rest of the directions exactly, and it turned out really good. I will keep this on file with my other 'favorite' recipes.
