Ingredients

2 tablespoons sliced garlic

10 thyme sprigs

8 boneless quail (wing tips removed, wings tucked under, leg tips removed, meat pushed back)

Kosher salt

Fresh ground black pepper

B.B.Q. sauce, your preference

Directions

  1. In a bowl, crush the garlic and the thyme with the back of a spoon. Season the quail with a little salt and pepper, then rub with the garlic and thyme. Allow marinating for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat oven at 375 degrees F.
  3. Brush both sides of the quail with the B.B.Q. sauce. Put quails on a rack in a baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
