    Caseylaine's Note:

    Basil lovers rejoice! The sauce in this recipe is gravy-like and the light coating on the chicken makes this light dish seem so rich. Said to be the meal that Napoleon at after defeating the Austrians in 1800, this recipe is named after the Italian town of Marengo where the skirmish took place. Napoleon liked it so much, he declared that the savory chicken breast should be served after every battle.

      This is a good recipe. The chicken stayed moist and tender. The basil is a nice addition. I made it exactly as written. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      Very good chicken dish for company or family. Only alteration I made was to use the chicken breasts without cutting them up. Loved the basil in it!
