Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large, shallow flameproof casserole dish. Season the guinea fowl pieces and brown them – in batches, if necessary – then remove to a plate.

  • STEP 2

    Fry the onions in the same dish until softened, then add the garlic and squash, cooking for 1-2 mins. Tip in the spices and cook for a few mins before adding the honey, saffron and lemon juice. Pour in the chicken stock and the chickpeas.

  • STEP 3

    Submerge the guinea fowl pieces in the stock and add the apricots. Cover the dish and simmer everything very gently for 50 mins-1 hr, until the fowl and squash are both tender. Stir through the coriander and serve with couscous or rice.
