Herb Roasted Pheasant with Wild Rice Stuffing

This beautiful roasted bird was served at the Obama inaugural luncheon.

Game plan: Pheasant can be substituted with chicken.

Instructions

  1. 1Boil the rice with the chicken stock, cook until soft and most of the liquid is gone.
  2. 2Add the onion, carrot, garlic and apricot. Cook until the vegetables are soft and all liquid has been absorbed. Refrigerate rice mixture until cold.
  3. 3In a food processor, puree pheasant tenders to a paste consistency to use as a binder for rice mix.
  4. 4When rice is cool, add the pheasant puree to the rice until well mixed. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and return to refrigerator until ready to stuff.
  5. 5Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  6. 6Make 10 small football shaped patties of the rice mix, stuff inside the pheasant, being careful not to overstuff the pheasant. Rub herb/oil mixture on top and bottom of the pheasant, season with salt and pepper. Place the pheasant on a heavy gauge roasting pan and then in a preheated oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with lid or foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Serve over sauté of spinach.
