Arrange doves in a double layer of foil. Place a piece of butter within the breast cavity of each dove. Sprinkle dove breasts liberally with Worcestershire, soy, juice of one lemon, salt, and pepper. Seal aluminum foil tightly and place in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes. Pour remaining juice over hot biscuits and serve with the doves.
