Guinea hen is like chicken, only better. It’s darker, leaner and slightly gamey. In a good way. Its taste is often described as a little bit chicken, a little bit pheasant.
In anticipation of your question, we offer the following suggestions on what to do with a pile of guinea hen legs:
You can confit them in duck fat. Or marinate and then grill for a backyard dinner. Wrap each leg in bacon and roast (it's called barding). Or simply braise in aromatic liquid. Invite some friends over to share and enjoy.
