Garlic Roasted Quail

Of all wild game and game birds, Bobwhite quail is my absolute favorite! These plump little birds have breasts of white, mild-tasting flesh, and they can be cooked using a variety of quail recipes. The following is an easy quail recipe that’s practically impossible to “mess up.”
