Easy Chicken Marengo (Shhhh, It's Campbell's)

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Oolala

I got this recipe a long time ago from a woman who worked with me. I adored it but my husband "wasn't into it" so I never made it again. I was in the mood for it though as time passed and I thought if I made it again he might like it. I tried it again one night and told him it was a new dish called "Chicken Italiano" but he still didn't like it! In fact, he even said "This isn't chicken Italiano, this is Chicken Marengo!" I'm posting this because I DO like it and maybe you will too. P.S.-I'm thinking of what I should call it next time to try to fool him! Note: you can use any chicken parts that you like.

I also make a Campbell's soup shortcut version of Chicken Marengo...try this: pat chicken pieces dry and season with pepper and a little salt. Brown pieces till golden in a bit of olive oil. Remove chicken when golden and set aside. Brown off some button mushrooms and sliced onions in leftover oil and cheicken brown bits in skillet. Mix 1 can Campbell's tomato soup and one can of Golden Mushroom soup. Thin with 1/2 can white wine. Add chicken into skillet, redistribute the mushrooms and onions over the chicken. Pour sauce mix over the top and simmer away....much more flavor that way.................
