READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by JustJanS

This is for a request for guinea fowl recipes. This is a good sauce for pheasant or chicken too.

Wow, this was spicy indeed! Guinea fowl can be very dry but this recipe ensures it doesn't. I hadn't got tabasco so used some pepper sauce which was very chilli-hot! I also used black grape juice instead of orange, but I don't think this changed the recipe that much, and definately worked. Served with rice and flageleot beans. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
