Recipe Directions for Chicken Marengo

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

Sauté the chopped onions in the frying pan in the oil until they are tender. Add the crushed garlic and continue sautéing for another minute. Add the remaining thyme, parsley, tomatoes, white wine, and chicken stock. Bring the sauce to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.
