Cooking Time: 35 minutes


 4 Persons


For Marinade

      • zest of 1 orange
      • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
      • juice of 1/2 lemon
      • 1 teaspoon salt
      • 1/4 cup brandy
      • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
      • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
      • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
      • 1/4 cup olive oil
      • 1/8 teaspoon
      • 4 partridges, butterflied; bone in
      • 4 round; thin slices pancetta
      • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
      • 4 thin slices Orange, cut from center


For the Marinade

      1. With a whisk, combine all of the marinade ingredients in a baking dish. Place the meat breast side down in the mixture. Marinate for 3 to 4 hours, turning over every hour.

For the Partridges

      1. Preheat the oven to broil. Place one orange slice on each breast that is sitting in the marinade and then cover with pancetta. Fasten them with a toothpick on each side.
      2. Add the cold butter to the baking dish with the marinade and place in the oven. Broil the birds breast side up, basting every 5 minutes, for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the breasts and let them rest on a plate for 10 minutes. Put the baking dish back in the oven and let the sauce reduce for 5 minutes more. Serve immediately.
