Category: Main Dish, Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 6 White guinea hen breasts*
  • -- abt. 3/4 lb. each
  • 3 tb Butter
  • Salt; to taste
  • 1 ts White pepper
  • 2 tb Flour
  • 1/2 ts Beau Monde seasoned salt
  • 1 Garlic clove; mashed
  • 1 tb Parsley; chopped very finely
  • 1 tb Green onion; chopped finely
  • -- both white & green parts
  • 3 c Rich chicken stock
  • -- all fat removed
  • 1 tb Parmesan cheese
  • 1 ts Maggi seasoning
  • 2 tb Dry sherry
  • 3/4 c Sliced, sauteed mushrooms
  • Cooked rice
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Butter


*Chicken breasts can be substituted.

Remove skin. Rub breasts with melted butter, salt and pepper; brown
lightly in heavy iron skillet and then place in roaster, meaty side down.

Make sauce by melting butter and flour; simmer 10 minutes, browning only
very slightly. Add Beau Monde, garlic, pepper and salt to taste, parsley,
onion and chicken stock. Then add Parmesan, Maggi and sherry; whip until
smooth. This should be a rather thin sauce, so a little more chicken stock
may be added if necessary. Pour over guinea breasts; cover and bake at 275
F. for 2 hours. Remove breasts; strain sauce and add sauteed mushrooms.

Place breasts in center of mound of rice; place artichoke hearts on each
side of guinea and glaze with sauce.
