    **I originally posted this in the Quail section and someone said people would love an article too so here it is :) **


    This is a recipe I found from a few different sites and a youtube video. I modified it and it came out to perfection.

    Resources: -->I saw a you tube link on this thread for General Tsos chicken. The youtube video is SUPER helpful to learn how to bread.

    I served it last night. It was AMAZING. If you do not have a deep fryer, you can use a pan with a ton of oil.

    9 whole quail, skin on

    6 cups water
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/2 cup sugar
    -Boil and mix until dissolved, chill until cold
    - Add quail, cover, refrigerate for 2 hours
    -Take quail out and rinse until water runs clear

    -In large bowl:
    1/4 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
    6 quail eggs
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    1 tsp white pepper
    -coat quail and refrigerate for 30 mins

    - to the bowl with quail add:
    1/3 cup cornstarch
    -mix until cornstarch is gone
    -then add
    1tbsp sesame oil
    1tbsp canola oil
    - mix thoroughly until breading is coated with oil and smooth

    -Arrange quail in fryer bucket
    -fry in 350 F oil for 5 minutes

    -Coat fried quail with sauce mixture: Szechuan, duck sauce, orange glaze, 1/4 cup sugar, teriyaki sauce
    - top with chopped green onion and untoasted sesame seeds

    I am just hatching quail right now, but I will have to give this a try. Interesting that you fried them whole. I would have thought I would need to spatchcock or halve them.
