Pan Fried Guinea Fowl Breast

Pan Fried Guinea Fowl Breast

This is another meal you can add accompaniments if you choose but this is a great protein rich course served just as it comes. Protein rich means fuller longer and that in turn means this is a good DIET resource. The guinea fowl is a subtle flavor but really combines well with the apple, ham and walnuts to create a delicious meal you will want to cook again!
On its own this meal counts as an Pro2days recipe on the Pro52diet.
