This is a simple skillet dish with a cream sauce that tastes like a professional made it. I hate to toot my own horn but I even surprised myself on how good this turned out. I can guarantee the whole family will love it. I swapped the usual chicken with some dove that I got from my first dove hunt recently. The hunt was as fast paste as this restaurant quality meal was to make!

  • Add your garlic. Place your dove breast side up and sear for about 3 min. Flip and sear breast til they start to brown. You may need to turn the dove to crisp the skin on any sides that don’t make contact with the skillet. Set the dove aside.
  • Deglaze the pan with chicken broth and add half of your spinach to the pan. Whisk in your half and half cook until your sauce thickens.
  • As sauce gets to a low simmer add your parmesan and red pepper flakes. This will add to the thickness of the sauce and give it a little spice.
  • Plate the rest of the fresh spinach and place your dove and spoon on the sauce with the mushrooms and spinach . Salt and pepper for taste and your gourmet meal is ready.

First and foremost, I am a husband and dad, but I am also a plumber, an angler, and proud to say, a hunter. Though I started hunting much later in my life than most people who hunt, it has become a huge part of my life in a short amount of time. It has expanded into so much more. Hunting has made me into a hiker, nature lover and I even started gardening. My love of the outdoors has grown so much in my adulthood. I have found out that as long as I can be outside, I seem to be content. At the lake or in the mountains, I just seem to find my happy place.
