New Beau Monde Marinated Chicken

Of the two beau monde seasonings mentioned in Saturday's post the New Beau Monde seasoning is the most versatile.  very easy and inexpensive to make at home .  New beau monde seasoning can be used for seasoning meats, fish, poultry, dips and marinades where it flavours nicely without overpowering.   It can even be used for adding a bit of extra flavour to coatings for fish and other deep fried foods.

Following my theme of using beau monde seasoning I decided a marinade with new beau monde seasoning. The marinade I made is Asian inspired.  It is very dark and flavourful marinade.  That is reflected in the end result of the meat.  I used chicken breasts that really took on the colour of the marinade nicely.  What was quite noticeable was the marinated chicken breasts took on a plumb but tight skinned appearance.  In hind sight though a little fresh ginger would have been a nice addition and next time I will increase the new beau monde seasoning by half.

½ c soy sauce

½ Spanish onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, pressed
8 c Grace's browning
1 tsp new beau monde seasoning

Combine ingredients.  Pour over chicken, beef or pork.  Cover and refrigerate 4 hours.

beau monde marinated chicken meal
I baked the marinated chicken breasts with the potatoes at 180ºC (350ºF) for 40 minutes in the new nami coated baking dish.  Then I removed the chicken breasts to rest before slicing.  Slicing the chicken revealed the juicy, tender white meat with the outer layer darkened by the marinade.  It was a lovely contrast!  I served the chicken with the baked potatoes, home canned wax beans, and tomatoes on a bed of iceberg lettuce with new beau monte dip

The chicken marinated with the new beau monde marinade was as tasty as it looked.  It had good flavour with great eye appeal.  This would be a great way to do chicken for wraps.  The chicken could also be used for a chicken Caesar salad.  The marinade definitely would give good results with pork tenderloin!

It looks really tasty.
Do you think your Beau Monde seasoning would be good with steaks or hamburger?
My husband only likes fried chicken. (!) I like it baked or broiled, too; but because of that, we mostly eat a lot of hamburger or steak, with the occasional roast turkey.
Just curious on your thoughts. :)

Hi Linda :) I think the New Beau Monde seasoning would go well with most fish, poultry and meats including hamburger. It isn't a strong, overpowering seasoning like the Old Beau Monde seasoning could be. I think you will really like the New Beau Monde seasoning. You could sprinkle it on the outside of both burgers and steak much the same as using any seasoning salt. Enjoy!
