Recipe Directions

1. Place the pheasant breasts in a Ziploc bag and pour the buttermilk over top. Pour enough to completely cover the breasts. Set in the refrigerator and marinate pheasant overnight.

2. Make the pancakes: whisk together the dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt) in a bowl. Stir together the wet ingredients (buttermilk, honey and eggs). Stir into cornmeal mixture until smooth.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt butter then pour 1/3 cup batter for each pancake onto skillet. Cook until tops are covered with bubbles and edges are cooked, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook until plump and cooked through 2-3 minutes. Repeat process with remaining batter.

4. Make the Fried Pheasant: Whisk together flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.

5. Whisk together 1/2 cup buttermilk and eggs in a separate bowl.

6. Toss pheasant, one piece at a time, in flour mixture; dip in buttermilk mixture and toss again in flour mixture. Let coated pheasant stand in flour mixture for 10 minutes.

7. Pour 1 ½ inches of peanut oil in a deep skillet . Heat oil over medium-high to 360°F. Fry chicken, in batches and turning occasionally, until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165°F, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to prepared rack. Keep warm in a 175°F oven up to 30 minutes.
