  • Deep Fryer


  • Biscuits
  • 2 Pheasant Breasts cut in half and tenderize to ¼ inch
  • 1 C Buttermilk
  • 2 C All-Purpose Flour
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1.5 tsp Pepper
  • ½ tsp Garlic Salt
  • Vegetable Oil Enough for deep fryer or deep pan
  • Whataburger Honey Butter*


  • After cutting and tenderizing your pheasant breasts to ¼ inch, place them in a Ziploc bag with the buttermilk. Let marinate overnight.
  • Heat oil to 300 °F (I use a deep fryer, but if you have a frying thermometer, a cast iron or any heavy duty deep enough pan will work).
  • Combine flour, salt, pepper, and garlic salt in a shallow dish (I use a pie dish).
  • Remove pheasant breast from the Ziploc bag and dredge in the flour mixture. Dunk back in plastic bag buttermilk and repeat the dredge in the flour mixture.
  • Repeat process for all of the pheasant breasts. Fry in oil for 5 minutes and flip and cook for another 3 minutes (or until golden brown and cooked through).
  • Assemble your biscuit. Cut biscuit in half. Place pheasant breast and top with honey butter and biscuit top.
  • *If you do not have the luxury of being near an HEB that carries Whataburger Honey Butter, A great alternative is combining 1 stick of room temperature salted butter and 1/8 C of clover honey.

Tenderizing Help:

  • Place pheasant breasts on a cutting board. Cover Breasts with a piece of plastic wrap. Hammer the breasts with your meat tenderizer carefully. A little will do A LOT.
  • What they should look like.
  • Idea of the thickness.
