Guinea Fowl Recipe with Truffle with Potatoes and Fond, cook like a Star Chef with Video Instructions

Today I present to you a great and simple Guinea Fowl recipe. The guinea fowl is in France the preferred chicken on the menus in the star gastronomy.

The guinea fowl is a special chicken, its meat offers an intense and aromatic taste. Compared to normal chicken, guinea fowl is a bit like game. At the same time it does not taste like game.

The method of preparation was inspired by a visit to Paris, I could not resist the black truffles and simply had to take some with me.

In the video “Simply prepare guinea fowl” I show you everything step by step.

Please cook the recipe quickly and share it with your friends on Facebook. 

1. Guinea Fowl with Truffle

I love the guinea fowl prepared this way. The skin of the guinea fowl breast is removed from the meat with my fingers, between the breast flesh and the skin I then insert finely planed black truffle slices. The guinea fowl is then seasoned with salt and pepper and put into the preheated (230°C) oven at high temperature. After a short time I reduce the temperature, but in the beginning the guinea fowl should get a lot of heat.

Poultry like chicken, quail, pigeon and guinea fowl harmonize perfectly with the black truffle!

2. Guinea Fowl with Herbs and Garlic

Instead of truffles you can also fill the guinea fowl with herbs. Use fresh or dried thyme or rosamary, please cut the herbs finely, so the aromas can spread wonderfully and the herbs can later be eaten on the plate without any problems.

3. Guinea Fowl with Garlic, Lemon and Herbs

This herbal thing can now be extended as you like! Italian herb mixture also deep-frozen, finely chopped garlic, fine lemon grater and rosemary, thyme with garlic and lemon grater, these are variations that go well with guinea fowl and make it really delicious.

The guinea fowl with herbs and Mediterranean vegetables. This is easy and quick to do in the oven.

4. Side Dishes with Guinea Fowl

I like the simple kitchen, so I prepare my guinea fowl in the potato stock. The potato cubes are first fried in some butter or clarified butter, then filled with chicken stock and refined with various aromas of garlic, parsley or thyme. If you want to make it even easier, after about 20 minutes cooking time add the potato cubes with a little butter to the roastreindl and the guinea fowl. Leave the potatoes to take a little color and then extinguish the whole with some white wine and chicken broth. Cook the chicken with the side dish in the oven.

Practical and simple: you can prepare truffle chicken and side dishes together in the oven!
