Chicken Marengo

chicken meranga

This chicken  recipe is very easy.  It is a great recipe when you don’t have many ingredients on hand.  The star of this recipe, the black olives are a pantry staple for most people, and the cherry tomatoes and white wine can be picked up for this dish on the way home from work or errands.  I did this recipe with bone in chicken breasts.  I have started to try and streamline my grocery bill, so I will be using more bone in chicken breasts and thighs. Serve this with white rice and roasted vegetables.
