Dressed Pheasant Breast

4 boneless, skinless pheasant breasts
1/2 C. flour
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp either sage or poultry seasoning, salt & pepper
1 box chicken Stovetop dressing
1 jar chicken gravy

Mix flour and seasonings well. Lay newspaper on counter with wax paper on top. Spread 1/2 the flour mixture on wax paper, lay the pheasant breast on flour, cover with remainder of flour mixture and another piece of wax paper. Pound the breasts to uniform thickness about 1/2", pounding in the flour.

Heat couple Tbsp. oil in 12" non stick fry pan and sear breasts on both sides. Drain any oil that might be left. Cover and bake in 350 degree oven 1/2 hour.

While pheasant is baking, measure hot tap water called for in Stovetop directions into bowl, add seasoning packet and crumbs and mix well til water is absorbed. After the 1/2 hour remove pan from oven and top each pheasant breast with large mound of dressing, then drizzle or pour about 1/4 C. chicken gravy over each mound of dressing. Return to oven covered for about 20 minutes. Remove cover and finish baking for another 15 min. to brown dressing nicely.
