While they were in the marinade. I made a glaze of orange juice, orange zest, whiskey,brown sugar and garlic. I simmered it in a small pan until reduced by 50%. Then cooled it. I took the birds, wrapped them in maple smoked bacon and placed on a medium hot grill. About 10 minutes before they were done, I brushed on the orange glaze and cooked them until done. I wished that I had some wild rice to go with them, but instead I made baked potato, and some baked beans. When I am cooking, I just cannot stop in the middle and rush off to the store.
Well, I have to admit, they were wonderful. The bacon gave them just enough fat to be moist and the glaze sweetened them with extra flavor. Donnie was very happy with them. I think he had fried all of the birds before, so this was a little different. If I remember correctly mama fried hers also. But all of the 5 star recipes on the Internet called for them to be grilled or roasted.
Next time, I will have some Uncle Ben's wild rice on hand. I think it would make it a perfect dish!
Hope your day has been wonderful
