Whatever you do dont over cook it.....it just goes dry and tasteless. As Craigyboy says get some bacon over it and that will keep it juicy. Either that you whip the breasts out and quickly pan fry with added herbs that you fancy........ :thumbs:

Oven roasted they are awesome.

 

plucking and gutting isn't as arduous as lazy b*****ds make out!

Pull all feathers out (a few mins per bird), slice through skin at bottom of breast bone and pull out guts.

Chop off head, rinse body cavity thoroughly.

 

Shove seasoned onion into body cavity and garlic, possibly some mixed herbs.

rub olive oil, then salt and pepper into skin (tasty skin mmmmmm!) and then lightly cover in streaky bacon.

 

Oven - 180 degrees, 45 mins. At 30 mins, take bacon off and roll, cocktail stick holds em like that, back in oven to finish.

 

Wife 'doesn't like' game, but doing the phessies this way with the usual roasties n trimmings (and the essential redcurrant jelly) saw her yumming it down and looking for seconds.

Girly shotgun coming up I reckon!
