MacFarlane Pheasants Offer Duck for Easter Dinner

If you want to shake things up a bit on Easter Sunday, I would recommend a Peking Duck from MacFarlane Pheasants. Succulent duck is naturally moist, flavorful and delicious. It is great for roasting in the oven or on the Weber grill! The duck recipe I will be sharing is included in our recipes for other game meat and is prepared in the oven. Chestnuts and wild rice add a delicious stuffing for this exquisite duck dinner. The rice and duck can be purchased online or at our retail store. If you would like to try our recipes for other wild game we sell, check out game meat on our website at pheasantfordinner.com.
