It was the middle of June 1800th year. Napolen had a battle near the small town - Marengo. Of course, the legendary commander remained the winner, but after the battle he became very hungry. He asked his cook to cook something delicious, which ran around in the village and found a chicken, eggs, tomatoes, olives and began to culinary. Cooked on this recipe, the chicken is known as the "chicken marengo".
Napoleon's cook needed:
2 p.s. butter
200 gr. mushrooms
100 gr. onions
50 gr. olives
greens to taste (in this case parsley and coriander, 20 gr.)
10 gr. garlic
1 glass of white wine
300 gr. tomatoes
Chicken cut into the desired pieces and smear with salt and pepper to taste. Fry it in butter, pour out excess fat. Add the finely chopped mushrooms, garlic, onions, olives, bay leaf and stew for another 5 minutes. Add 1 glass of wine, which will help to prevent the chicken from burning. When the wine is almost evaporated, add the unskinned tomato and stir until it melt. After 10 minutes, the dish is ready.
Sprinkle with herbs and serve with garnish.
That's how delicious the day ended, one of Napoleon's victories.
