Dutch Oven Dove

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

The gravy is almost as good as the doves. Serve it over a wild and white rice combination or serve it on brown rice.

Very tasty! One of the best ways I've ever had dove. 24 doves makes 4-6 servings. We just made it in a frying pan on the stove, not a Dutch oven. For next time, would recomend cutting meat off bone rather than cooking whole breast. Served with mashed potatoes and corn.
