Pheasant with Pancetta

Pleasant Pheasant Dishes >>

A deliciously warming winter meal that is traditional and very rustic.


4 Large Pheasant Breasts
4 Slices Pancetta
4 bay leaves
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Large Green Peppers, sliced lengthways
Olive Oil


Preheat oven to 230 degrees C, and season the breasts with the pepper. Wrap in the pancetta, tucking in a bay leaf.

Prepare the peppers, brushing them over with a little oil, and then pour some oil into a roasting tin. Place the wrapped breasts in the tin together with the peppers and bake near the top of the oven. If you place the peppers skin side up, the skin will brown nicely and the pancetta should be nice and crisp. We wouldn't advocate more than about 20 mins in a hot oven,keeping a check after 15 mins - pheasant breasts are not as large as chicken breasts but should be cooked thoroughly.

We suggest serving with a vegetable in a sauce, such as leeks in white sauce or courgettes in a tomato and oregano bake. MMMMmmm!
