    Cut the quails along the breast bone and turn them around. Press down firmly to flatten them as much as possible. Place the quails into a flat dish where they fit next to each other  Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, sage leaves, garlic and chili, and season with salt and pepper. Pour this marinade onto the birds and leave for about 30 minutes but flip them over after 15 minutes. Preheat the grill. Place the quail in the grill oven with skin side up. Set the height (top of birds) to about 6" (15cm) below the heating element and grill them for about 5 minutes before turning them over and grilling the other side for another 5 minutes or until they get a nice golden brown color and thoroughly baked. Can be served hot or cold, sprinkle with parsley and sprinkle lemon juice on it.Grilled quail Italian style
