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.
- 8 pieces chicken, one the bone
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can campbell's tomato soup, condensed
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Campbell's French onion soup, condensed
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup, condensed
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup mushroom, sliced
- Mix all ingredients, except for the chicken, in a bowl.
- Put chicken parts in a pyrex baking dish and pour the soup blend over the chicken.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
- Meanwhile, prepare a box of linguine or any other pasta to serve with the chicken and drain.
- There will be a lot of sauce to serve with the chicken and pasta. Hope you like it.
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.................
Somehow the flavor of this sauce did not do it for me. But thanks for sharing, Oolala!
