Today I present you a great and simple guinea fowl recipe.

In France, chicken is sometimes the favorite fowl on the menus in star restaurants.

The special chicken offers an intense and aromatic taste.

Compared to normal chicken, it is a bit reminiscent of game. At the same time, it doesn’t taste overpowering.

The method of preparation is inspired by a visit to Paris, I couldn’t resist the black truffles and just had to take some with me.

In the cooking video I show you everything step by step.

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

3. Guinea Fowl In the Top Gourmet Version

I love the chicken cooked this way.

I carefully remove the skin from the meat with my fingers, then place finely grated black truffle slices between the breast meat and the skin.

I then season the guinea fowl with salt and pepper and then put it in the preheated (230°C) oven at high temperature.

I then reduce the temperature after a short time, but initially the guinea fowl should get a lot of heat.

Poultry such as chicken, quail, pigeon and guinea fowl harmonize perfectly with the black truffle!
You can even buy truffles pickled in the supermarket.

The pheasant can also be prepared with truffles in potato stock.

4. Easily Prepare Variant For Guinea Fowl With Herbs

Instead of truffles, you can stuff the chicken with herbs.

Use fresh or dried thyme or rosemary.

Please cut the herbs finely so that the aromas can spread wonderfully and the herbs can later be eaten on the plate without any problems.

Garden herbs bouquet
Herbs as a supplement are popular with star chefs, anything that tastes good and makes you happy is allowed.

This herbal thing can now be expanded at will!

Italian herb mixture, also frozen, finely chopped garlic, fine lemon zest and rosemary.

Thyme with garlic and lemon zest is another subtle variation that goes well with the guinea fowl and makes it really tasty.

Guinea fowl with herbs and vegetables as a side dish

5. Ideas For Side Dishes With Guinea Fowl

I like the simple cuisine, so I prepare a potato stock.

I first fry the potato cubes in a little butter or clarified butter, then deglaze with chicken stock and refine with garlic, parsley or thyme.

If you want to make it even easier, add the diced potatoes with a little butter after about 20 minutes of cooking time to the Roast Reindl for roasting poultry.

Let the potatoes color a bit and then deglaze with some white wine and chicken broth. Chicken and side dish then cooks in the oven.

Practical and simple: You can prepare guinea fowl and side dishes together in the oven!

  • A beautiful dish and so easy. I like to cook simple dishes and this poultry dish with potatoes in the stock is very delicious. It wasn't a guinea fowl for me, I only got corn chickens. Delicious!
