Marinated Grilled Pheasant Breasts with Couscous

Nick went hunting with his dad and brother and they brought back quite a few pheasant breasts. We are continuing to explore various recipes for cooking them. This time we decided to marinate the breasts and cook them on the grill. We decided to serve them with couscous. Overall, it was a very nice meal. The marinade really added some great flavor to the breasts.
Served!
