Airline (drumette attached) Split Breasts
Guinea fowl are originally from Africa, but have become a popular
roasting bird in France & Italy. Their slightly red meat is lean
with an exciting flavor profile stronger than chicken and pheasant but less potent than duck.
Airline guinea hen breasts are skin-on breasts that have the largest
wing bone (the drumette) left attached for a more elegant presentation,
but are otherwise boneless.
Air chilling (as opposed to the
cheaper and more common industrial water chilling) guinea hens is a more
environmentally sound process that generates less waste and further
improves the flavor and texture of the bird (water chilled birds absorb
undesirable water during the chilling process).
Store guinea hen breasts frozen until you need them, then defrost completely before cooking.Thawing Tips
Guinea hen breasts can be roasted or pan-roasted. Because guinea hen meat is so lean, it is often barded (wrapped with bacon or pancetta) brined, buttered, or marinated before cooking or basted while cooking to help keep it moist.How to Brine Meat & PoultryPoultry Recipes
