Chicken Fried Dove Nuggets with Sriracha Ketchup
This is what a Girl does on her 40th Birthday! HAHAHA. In reality this is what we do every year on my Birthday since it falls on September 1.
We didn’t see a lot of doves for opening day where we could actually shoot them. Of course, I counted about 30 in my backyard the evening before Opener. I think they know something was up. Funny thing is that I end up with more dead doves hitting our windows every year then I ever seem to get to shoot during the season.
But for this Birthday girl at least I came home with 3 out of 4 doves. I figure that should at least make a few appetizers for myself.
SERVING: 1 to 2 people. Perfect for an appetizer.
- 3 dove breasts cut into 1/4 inch pieces
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
- 1 cup sifted flour
- 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
- Canola oil
- 1 egg
- Chopped fresh chives (optional)
Cut dove breasts into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Mix flour, Panko, garlic powder, salt, pepper and thyme in bowl. Beat one egg in separate bowl. Heat cast iron skillet to Medium-high temperature and add canola oil to cover bottom of pan.
Add dove to egg mixture and then toss in flour. Place dove in oil and fry on both sides until golden brown. About 2-3 minutes each side.
Serve fried dove nuggets with Sriracha ketchup, ranch or nothing at all.
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha
