I have started cooking this Filipino Style Chicken Marengo (up to now) in the 90´s out of what I had in my kitchen cupboard and fridge that I did not even know how it was called until I came across of Chicken Marengo recipe online. I used to call this recipe Chicken in Tomato Sauce before. So this is my Filipino way of making chicken Marengo.
BTW, as what I have read in Wikipedia, Chicken Marengo was first made after Napoleon Bonaparte and his army won the Battle of Marengo in Italy against the Austrian army.
Filipino style Chicken Marengo is mostly served with boiled rice but sometimes I served it with peeled cooked potatoes or pasta and with side dishes like vegetable salad.
Other vegetables you can use in case you don´t have or don´t like mushrooms:
Aubergine or eggplant
Olives, black or green
I have made this Filipino style chicken marengo with some Asian vegetables like Chayote when I was in my home country Philippines. Chayote is a kind of squash common in Asian countries. This vegetable is all year round in the Philippines but I can buy this in Asian shop in Germany too whenever I need it. Though it´s a bit expensive but it is worth it.
I hope you will try and like my Filipino way of cooking Chicken Marengo. Thanks for reading.
