Dove Breasts and Wild Rice Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Top Review by jenniferpankratz

The rice tasted wonderful. I used seasoned wild rice instead of plain. However, the dove (as they usually are) were a little bland. I am still searching for a great dove recipe that doesn't involve bacon. Tip for all of you wild game chefs: Soak dove or quail overnight in milk to tenderize and take away gamey taste!
