Original recipe makes 4 pheasants Change Servings


  1. Place the pheasants into a large slow cooker. Wrap and drape the bacon over the birds, covering the pheasants as much as you can. Whisk the condensed soup, sour cream, water, chopped onion, onion soup mix, and mushrooms together in a mixing bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour over the pheasants.
  2. Cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours, or on High for 5 to 7 hours.

Easy recipe & great flavor. The bacon adds a nice savory touch. I only mixed in 1/2 cup of water because we prefer a thicker soup/gravy to spoon over our rice & meat. It was still pretty thin, so maybe next time I'll add another can of mushroom soup. Will make this again!

The recipe was a little salty and oniony, but the pheasants were okay. I only give it 3 stars because I'm not a fan of the texture of pheasant.

Just like my Grandpa used to make it every Thanksgiving after a Fall hunting trip! Yum Yum. Thanks for the walk down memory lane:-)

Tried this for our Thanksgiving lunch and even the most finicky eaters in my family loved it! Will definitely make this again.

I always have pheasant in my freezer it seems and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. This recipe caught my eye and am I ever glad I made this! The pheasant was so tender and moist it fell right off the bones. I made mashed potatoes to go with it and used the sauce as a gravy. It had great taste. We will make this again.

Spectacular. This was really a wonderful way to make a whole chicken in the crock pot; I used a fryer instead of the pheasants and it came out great! Also, eliminating the bacon, this is a great base recipe for a chicken to which then almost anything can be done for a brand new meal!!
