Quaglie Alla Melagrana (Quail with Pomegranate) Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Excellent recipe! Haven't ever seen quails in any local stores, so I used 2 Cornish hens, which are quite a bit bigger than quails; the quantity of marinade, etc. for the 12 quails was just about right for the 2 hens, and used 3 pancetta for each bird. Served 1/2 hen per person. Also had to cook in oven quite a bit longer (a little more than an hour, I think); I used an instant thermometer to judge doneness and ensure the seeds used as stuffing got up to about 160F since they were used in marinating the raw bird. Pancetta got a bit overdone, slightly burnt at the longer cooking time, so I should have added that halfway through the oven time, although it was still very tasty. Anyway, bird & sauce had a wonderful flavor. Expect I'll do this again!
