How to Make It

Step

Light a grill or preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup and chile powder. Brush the quail with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill or broil on a rimmed baking sheet until browned, about 1 minute per side. Brush the quail all over with the maple glaze and grill or broil them, breast side toward the heat, for about 2 minutes, or until the quail are well browned and just pink at the bone; serve.

Suggested Pairing

Delicate, sweet-flavored quail is best paired with a light, elegant red, such as an Oregon Pinot Noir.
