Recipe Story

My husband brought home pheasant from our home state of South Dakota and my Grandpa gave me the challenge of cooking up 3 dishes for our friends here in Chicago for our South Dakota Style Lunch! *Other recipes: Pheasant Chislic and Creamy Pheasant Soup


 Pheasant breast halves8 , boneless and skinless
 Eggs3 , beaten
 Salt2 Teaspoon, divided
 Pepper2 Teaspoon, divided
 Frying magic/Shake and bake1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
 Seasoning salt1 Tablespoon
 Oil4 Tablespoon
 Heavy whipping cream1 Pint
 Cream of chicken soup2 Can (20 oz)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a shallow dish add in the eggs, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper, beat to combine. In another shallow dish add in Fryin’ Magic, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper and seasoning salt, stir to combine.

Dredge each pheasant breast first in the egg mixture and then in the dry mixture. Then add into a skillet on a high heat that has ¼ inch of oil at the bottom. Brown each side of the breast, approximately 4 minutes/side. (You may have to do in batches to not crowd the skillet and you may have to add more oil, depending on how may breasts you have.)

Place the pheasant breast in a large pot or roasting pan. Once all of the pheasants are browned and in the pan, cover and place in the oven for 1 ½ hours.

In a separate sauce pan add the heavy whipping cream and cream of chicken soup on a low heat. After the 1 ½ hours in the oven, remove the pheasant from the oven and pour the cream mixture over the pheasant. Reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees, then cover pot/pan and place back in the oven for an additional 1 hour. Serve and Enjoy!
