INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium pheasants
  • 175 ml (6 fl oz) orange juice
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 2 teaspoons green peppercorns
  • 150 ml (¼ pint) dry white wine
  • 8 canned artichoke hearts
  • Salt

TO GARNISH:

  • Heart-shaped croutons
  • Peeled orange segments

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Using a very sharp knife, remove the breasts and drumsticks from each bird. Skin the birds, trimming any visible fat.

2 Put the pheasants into a dish with the orange juice, garlic, chives and salt. Cover and chill for 4 hours.

3 Transfer the pheasants and marinade to a frying pan. Add the peppercorns and the white wine and simmer for 15—20 minutes.

4 Add the artichoke hearts and simmer for a further 6—8 minutes, until the pheasants are just tender.

5 Remove the pheasants and artichoke hearts from the pan and keep warm.

6 Reduce the cooking juices slightly over a brisk heat; spoon over the pheasants and garnish with the croutons and orange segments.
