You can always butterfly them like this and do the traditional bacon wrap with jalapenos.

[quote=bill oxner]I tried to pan fry quail for several years. The breast never came out right because they have three sices, and the bones prohibited the flour from properly coating. A friend and I had an 840 quail year, so I had more than I knew what to do with them. I taught myself to butterfly the quail. I've show this to lots of people since, and it's the only way they cook their quail anymore.

The first and most important step is to cut off the ball and socket joints like this;

Next you run your sissors under the rib cage on each side.

Then you clip off the sternum.

Pull the bones over the front of the quail breast, and it's a done deal.

You have a butterflied quail breast which will pan fry in less than 3 minutes on each side. Use your pan drippings for cream gravy. You don't have to use an egg wash if you bread them 30 minutes or so before you fry them. The breading will get gummy, and they'll come out crisp.
Quail hunting is like walking into, and out of a beautiful painting all day long. Gene Hill

Stuffed Quail. I used Zesty Italian rub then stuffed with Boudain Sausage wrapped with bacon cooked over pecan wood at 350 for about 45 minutes..By far the best quail I've eaten. These are Texas A&M quail that I raise.
