My husband loves to hunt birds. Quail was one of his preys this last year. So, for New years Eve dinner I made this yummy and easy recipe. paired with fresh steamed green beans and some Rice pilaf it was DIVINE! Even my 8, 5, and 2 yr. old loved it!

Ingredients2 (14-ounce) packages quail, dressed with breasts deboned

1 (8-ounce) bottle Italian dressing

1/2 cup dry red wine

1 (9.5-ounce) jar seedless blackberry spread

Preparation: Rinse quail, and pat dry. Place in a large shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add Italian dressing. Cover or seal, and chill 8 hours. Remove quail, discarding marinade.Cook wine in a small saucepan over medium heat 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Whisk in blackberry spread until smooth. Reserve 3/4 cup.Grill quail over medium heat (300° to 350°) 15 minutes, turning once and basting with remaining blackberry sauce. Serve with reserved 3/4 cup sauce.
