DescriptionDescription & Details

Our guinea hen is humanely raised on a small farm in California, with no added antibiotics or growth stimulants, in cage-free conditions. Guinea hen has a flavor that’s approachable, easy to enjoy and almost like pheasant, but with darker and more mildly flavored meat. A favorite roasting bird in France, you can use guinea hen in place of chicken in virtually any recipe. Just take care not to overcook the lean, delicate meat.

Cooking & Serving

Cooking Methods: Roast, Braise, Poach, Stew, Barbecue

Cooking Tips: Guinea hen can be cooked just like chicken, although it has a thinner, leaner skin. A rubdown with butter, duck fat, or a few strips of bacon will add flavor and keep the bird moist. Try adding shallots, citrus, garlic, and/or herbs to the cavity before roasting. Just like chicken, guinea hen should reach a finished temperature of 165 degrees F.
