I'm always amazed over the fact that the 'rabbit-flavor' is barely discernible in their dishes.
I complement the chef and thank them for purchasing my stock for their menu.
I've threatened several times to process a young 7-week old rabbit, send it to the chef,
and tell them to fry it like a young chicken... THEN they'll know what they've been missing.
It's a unique, stand-by-itself meat that needs very little, if any, additives.

I grew up eating a lot of fish, living near the shore. And I have always enjoyed my fish with zero seasonings, especially NO LEMON.
With rabbit, it's much the same. As others already said, it does NOT taste like chicken. It tastes like rabbit. And, I like it. However, being low in fat, it can take on pretty much any flavor you want to impart to it with seasonings. I often use chicken bouillon with it. I often use McCormick's baking bags with it too, to make it a bit juicier. I adore using the front legs pretty much as chicken wings, cooking them all day in a crock pot with a bit of BBQ sauce. When they start falling apart, I toss in a cup of rice and keep it hot till the rice is done. The rib cages I usually boil till they fall apart, separate out all the bones, and use the meat as BBQ or rabbit salad. The saddles I usually roast, covered in foil, then pick off all the meat and freeze it for soups, stir-fry, or stew. But, by far, my favorite parts are the livers, with the hearts and kidneys a close 2nd. They are wonderful sauteed with onions and a bit of brown gravy, served over rice.

I love it.
My step-daughter tried it for the first time on a trip to Cuba.
She Loves it.
My husband eats what I make.
My step-son, has no idea what he is eating most of the time.... if he likes it he keeps eating, if he doesn't, he stops and gets something else.
Rabbit lightly seasoned and grilled... yum!
Rabbit stewed .... yum!
I find that now that I do my own processing, I can sort the rabbits by cooking method and label the freezer bags accordingly. No guessing if the rabbit was young enough to handle light seasoning and grilling or if that is a stewing bunny....
I am working hard to have all our protein come from humanely raised animals, while still living in a subdivision. This means renting farm space. My meat chickens pay for themselves in chicken and my rabbits have yet to pay the rent.
I'm hoping that having selected a showable breed, the rabbits will become better at paying their rent in a year or so.
(we have found a pasture raised beef operation with quality beef and I am still on the hunt for pork, but might have to wait for the farm for that)
Working towards a farm to raise animals with respect and care.
