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.

INGREDIENTS

  • 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)

DIRECTIONS
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.

3 Whole Dove Breasts sliced into thin strips and dipped in egg, then dipped in flour mixture and fried to perfection. (NOTE: You can always double the recipe if you have more dove. The fresh thyme and Panko really add flavor and crunch to the fried dove.)

    Just tried the dove recipe (13 dove) and increased the amount of ingredients. Seems like way too much flour and I could have went down two eggs. Tastes great though. Will have to tweak the recipe a bit next time. Thanks for the idea. Taking them to a cookout this afternoon.
