  3. Put the guinea fowl in and fry it around brown.

  11. Now rinse the lentils well and put them in the pan with the sauerkraut and guinea fowl.
  12. Put the lid back on the pan and let the guinea fowl gently simmer for about 30 minutes until it is done. If in doubt, use a meat thermometer for this.
  13. Take the guinea fowl with the seasoning package carefully out of the pan and put aside for a while.
  14. Stir in the mustard and creme fraiche.
