Excite your taste buds with this delicious French cuisine culinary delight, chicken marengo. Chicken thighs are seared to perfection then braised in white wine sauce infused with San Marzano tomatoes and fragrant herbs and aromatics.
The recipe is so easy but so flavorful thanks to all the amazing, fragrant herbs. Chicken is tender, fall of the bone and juicy. I recommend using thighs, because thicken breast tends to dry out in this recipe.
Chicken thighs are seared in the pan to a beautiful amber brown and then finished in the oven with the luxurious sauce. The oven is emitting the most taunting smell while the chicken is simmering away in the oven, and the aroma is just a mouthwatering prelude of what to come.
