  1. I have made chicken Marengo for years. My three sons always smiled when I made that. Always made it alonf with baby peas and mashed potatoes. the boys would make a big dip in the middle of their mashed potatoes and the luscious red gravy would beep poured into that. They never went away hungry. To this day they still love this meal! Thank you Campbell Soup. Now my sons have grown children who, yes, love Chicken Marengo. Anyone I ever served it to were never disappointed. Linda D…..😘
