In Greece, pheasants are a fairly popular bird to cook and eat. If you don’t have access to pheasants, you can substitute other types of poultry, such as small chickens or Cornish game hens.

Greek Grilled Pheasant (Fasianos sti Skhara) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 young pheasants, cleaned and giblets removed
  • 2 tablespoons Greek olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 recipe Greek oil and vinegar dressing
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

How to Make Greek Style Grilled Pheasant:

Set the grill to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or prepare the coals.

Rub the pheasants inside and out with the olive oil and then the salt and pepper.

Prepare the oil and vinegar dressing according to the recipe instructions.

Brush the pheasant on all sides with the dressing. Sprinkle them the oregano.

Place the pheasants directly on the grill and grill for 5 minutes on each side.

While the pheasants cook, continue to brush them on all sides with the oil and vinegar dressing.

Rotate them every five minutes until they’re cooked all the way through. This should take about 50 minutes.
