“Although wrapping bacon around them and sticking a jalapeño down the middle is a great way to prepare dove, this is a great recipe when you are looking to switch things up a bit and impress your hunting buddies or family.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound breasts lightly with a mallet until half normal thickness. Combine marinade ingredients and toss with the pounded dove breasts. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours. Combine dipping sauce ingredients and divide into 4 small bowls. Arrange stuffing ingredients on a platter. Remove dove breasts from marinade. Discard marinade. Heat 1 – 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add doves breasts and cook for about 1 minute per side, just enough time to barely brown each side. Remove from heat and transfer to the platter. To serve, allow guests to assemble their own stuffing ingredients in a lettuce leaf. Ingredients are placed in each leaf and rolled up with your hands. Hang on to the wrap firmly and dunk into the dipping sauce.
