Recipe proposed by : Nanie Cuisine
Recipe type : Game

Preparation time : 30 minutes
Difficulty : Easy
Cooking time : 30 minutes
Cooking cost : Affordable


Serves 2:

- 2 guinea fowl legs
- about 15 chervil plants
- 100 g chanterelles
- about 20 chestnuts
- butter
- salt
- freshly ground pepper


  • Remove the first skin from the chestnuts.
  • Cook them in a pan of boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Drain them, then remove the second skin. Set aside.
  • Scrape the chervil. Wash them.
  • Cook them in a pan, covered, for about 15 minutes, with 20 cl of water and a knob of butter.
  • Prick with a knife to check the cooking and set aside.
  • Sort the chanterelles to remove any impurities.
  • Rinse them very quickly under water and drain them well.
  • Steam them for 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • Heat a good knob of butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
  • Fry the guinea fowl legs on both sides for 7 to 8 minutes, basting with the butter as they cook.
  • Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.
  • In the same pan, add the chestnuts, chanterelles and chervil and fry for a few minutes, stirring well so that the meat juices coat the vegetables.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the guinea fowl and vegetables on a warm serving plate. Serve hot.


  •  For an even more delicious recipe, replace the chanterelles with girolles.
  • Tuberous chervil is an exceptional dish: this small root vegetable has a taste similar to that of potatoes, with notes of chestnuts. It can be found on the shelves at the end of the year.
