Pintade French Guinea Fowl Recipe

Ingredients
1 guinea fowl about 3 1/2 lb. or 2 guinea fowl 2 pounds each, cut into serving pieces
2 large onions, diced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 whole bay leaf
½ teaspoon dried thyme
4 sprigs fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary
5 cloves of garlic, peeled
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 cups vegetable broth
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Directions
Season cut-up guinea fowl with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold the pieces in one layer. Add the hen pieces skin side down and cook, turning the pieces often, until browned all over. Remove fowl, add the onions and spices, and stir. Cook about two minutes. Sprinkle onion mix with flour and stir so that the ingredients cook evenly. Add the broth, cover and cook about 20 minutes. Uncover and let cook about 10 minutes longer. Serve your guinea fowl in the casserole dish of your choice, with sides such as rice, potatoes or vegetables.
