Chicken Marengo, similar to chicken a la Provencale, is a French chicken stew that originated in Marengo, South of Turin, Italy. Its history goes way back to the Battle of Marengo in 1800 when it was first prepared after Napoleon Bonaparte defeated the Austrian army.
It’s a classic favorite because many people love chicken and many people also love stew.

Since childhood, Chicken Marengo has been one of my favorites. And I like eating it with rice.
If I had my way, I would have it as some sort of “weekly viand”. As a fan of good food, spicy chicken and rice casserole dishes, it’s definitely a delight to have a taste of Chicken Marengo.
