    I just tried this out tonight and it tasted so good, so I thought I'd post it. I had a similar recipe, but I discarded it and made it up as I went it along - with a few of my own touches: [​IMG]

    I browned the quails in a pot with a little oil, and poured freshly squeezed orange juice over them.

    Then I removed them and mixed up the marinade in the same pot.

    2 chopped garlic cloves
    2 cups water
    1 vegie stock cube
    Juice from 2 fresh lemons
    Pinch of salt
    Dash of chilli powder

    I stirred and brought it to the boil:

    When the sauce was boiled I put the quails back in to soak up the liquid. I replaced the lid and left it until they were thoroughly cooked inside.

    Give it a go!
