Weight Watchers Peppered Orange Quail


  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¾ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 4 (¼-pound) semi-boneless quail, thawed, skin removed, and split open down the back
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray; prepare the grill for a medium-hot fire.
  2. Combine the molasses, orange zest, vinegar, and pepper in a zip-close plastic bag; add the quail. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the quail. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, for about 15 minutes.
  3. Lift the quail from the marinade and sprinkle with the salt. Discard the marinade. Place the quail on the grill rack and grill until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side.
