Well, I couldn't find these little birds today at my butcher's or the grocery store. Apparently, it's just the start of gaming season here and they will hopefully have some in a few weeks. I could have gone for pigeon or pheasant but opted for good old chicken instead.
I decided to go with the process though and flattened my big bird. Next stumbling block was I'm the only one in my family that likes olives. So, I put the olive tapenade on the corner of one breast and the top of a thigh. I'm interested to read everyone's post to see how much flavour the little birds had. I'll have to say mine was not that flavourful. I seasoned per the recipe and added dried herbs because I just think roast chicken (which is what I was making) needs a lot of seasoning to taste like anything.
I served with buttermilk mashed potatoes and green beans with pancetta. Bit disappointed this week and not really looking forward to next because I don't like smoked salmon. I'm going to find something that the group made before I joined to make instead.
Happy weekend to everyone!
