I have lived in Italy for close on ten years and of the many things I love perhaps the food is top of the list. Eating in Italy is a serious business.
Some of the best meals you will ever eat in Italy aren't to be found in restaurants but in people's homes. The true top chefs of Italian cuisine are the Italian Mammas found throughout this beautiful land.
Chicken Marengo is just such a recipe. It is simple to make but it is delicious!! Don't worry too much about the truffles and crayfish - they add a little but aren't essential. Enjoy it and please let me know what you think.
1 Chicken, cut into pieces
1 tsp Salt
1 Dash Pepper
4 tbs Olive Oil
1 Chopped Onion
½ Clove Minced Garlic
½ cup Chopped Tomato
½ cup Sliced White Truffles (optional)
¼ cup Cognac or Sherry
2 tbs Flour
6 Eggs for garnishing, crayfish optional for garnishing
1) Cut the chicken into pieces. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and flour and brown in oil. Set aside.
2) Sauté the onions and garlic in the same pan. Add the chicken and rest of the ingredients, cover and simmer until tender (30-40 minutes). White wine can be used instead of the cognac or sherry and to be honest I prefer using white wine.
3) Fry the eggs and place one on each dish as a garnish. Serves Six.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, I have lots more that I would like to share with you. To view some of my other favorites please visit me here: http://www.my-italy-piedmont-marche-and-more.com/italian-recipe.html
