This one-pot rustic dish makes for a great fall dinner with your family when you need a little comfort food on a cold night. A little smoky bacon with sweet prunes is the perfect pairing with poultry. We recommend pairing it with a light pinot noir - preferably from Burgundy. Yes, it's red wine with poultry but trust us. It's good!
You'll have a tender, juicy bird along with a side of vegetable, and a rich pan sauce. No thinking about what extra vegetables to make tonight. We use guinea hen because we think the meat is richer compared to chicken. If you're not in France or can't find guinea hen at your local butcher, a good quality chicken will do the trick. The beauty of this recipe is that everything cooks together, and the juices from the bird season the vegetables as they cook.
