Does anyone have a good recipe for chucker ? I was given 10 breasts and I have never had it before and don't want to ruin a good thing.

I’ve never done one, but looking around here, treating it like quail or game hen seems to be the thing. 160ish IT, many talked about wrapping in bacon! Sounds awesome. We did that a lot with pheasant and duck!

We've had bird dogs for most of my life so we've eaten a lot of Chukars over the years among our gamebird haul. My favorite way is pan fried in bacon grease but you can use it interchangeably with any chicken breast preparation. Delicious and a very fun bird to hunt!
