Sear bird over med high heat in an oven safe pan uuntil golden brown on both sides about 2 or 3 min a side. Cover and place in 425 degree oven for 6 minutes. Set aside birds in warn place or cover with foil. Put pan back on stove top over med heat (with out burning yourself). Deglaze with a quarter cup of white wine and scape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula or the like. Add a quarter cup of chicken stock. Or save your carcass’s from this batch and make quail stock for your next meal. Add 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 4 fresh tarragon leaves cut into thin slivers and a teaspoon of savory powder. Reduce until sauce will cover the back of a spoon. Pour sauce over birds garnish with a tarragon leave or two and enjoy.

Roasted fingerling potato’s and or a mild flavored vegetable compliment this well. Pinot Noir, or Viogner respectively for a white or red.

Olive oil could be substituted for clarified butter and coors could be substituted for wine.
