Tiny quail make an easy and impressive dinner. Quail cook up quickly in a hot oven. Pick up some fresh, whole quail from the butcher and cook them by browning them on the stove top, then finishing them in the oven to get perfectly cooked quail with a nice, crusty sear. You can also smother the quail in gravy and cook them in the oven to make them tender and juicy.

Pan-Roasted Quail

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Rinse the quail and pat them dry with paper towels.

Step 3

Rub the quail with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Heat olive oil in a large, ovenproof skillet. Place the quail in the pan, skin side down. Cook until the skin turns brown, about three minutes. Use tongs to turn the quail. Cook the second side for three more minutes.

Step 5

Place the pan in the oven. Cook the quail for nine minutes or until done. Serve warm with sauce or plain.
