5 (4 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch strips
ground black pepper
grated Parmesan cheese
I decided to make this at the last minute. So I decided to make the marinade as a sauce. I doubled the sauce ingredients; cut the chicken breasts into little pieces and cooked the chicken in the marinade in a saucepan; covered; for 30 min. which was too long; 15 min. would've been better. The flavor was really good. Next time I'll cut down by 1 T the lemon juice and the worcestershire. I'll definitely make this again, my way.
I tried this and we did not like, so the second time around we sauted chicken on stovetop using 1/2 cup of chicken broth, seasoned with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder till nearly cooked and juices run clear. In a sauce pan melt 1 cup of butter, 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon of fresh garlic or jarred, 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley or you can use dried. Over medium heat, combine butter mustard, lemon juice, garlic and parsley. When butter melts remove from heat. Arrange chicken in a shallow pan and pour butter mixture over. Cook for 35 to 40 minutes till chicken is done. Yummy Yummy Yummy!
I sort of combined the 3 chicken scampi recipes that are presently on this website trying to find the closest representation to what is on that "well-known Italian restaurant chain" menu. (Chicken scampi is the only item on their menu that I like.) So even though there is a lot of butter (and that is why it is good!), I used the sauce on Jill's, decreasing the Worcestershire sauce to more of a hint than 3 T; I added the veggies (peppers, sauteed onion, mushrooms) and WAY more parmesan; and served it over angelhair pasta like the restaurant does. It turned out really good. My husband loved it and so did I. I'll make it again. Thank you to all 3 contributers! :-)
My husband and I both loved this dish. We decided it was great but not amazing. I doubled the marinade and let the chicken sit overnight. I left out the lemon juice till a few hours before I cooked it. I didn't want the acid to cook the chicken. After boiling the sauce for a few minutes it got kind of thick so i added a few teaspoons of olive oil to thin it up a little. I served over pasta and with a side of asparagus. Delicious!
I tried with shrimp and it was also delicious. I only marinaded for a few hours and it was plenty. Next time I will try with fish.
Delicious....I didn't measure anything, just eyed it. I only marinated for 2 hours, but what i did was take a fork and just poke the chicken and couple of times and took the air out of the container i put it in. It's delicous
This is a terrific base recipe. I did change a few things though. I added a lot more garlic, mainly because my household is full of garlic fanatics, I also added the juice from a whole lemon adding a nice citrus hint to the background. Also, a pat of butter thickens the sauce nicely.
Great pasta dish. I served it with angel hair. I took the left over marinade, boiled it for several minutes and tossed it with the angel hair. They only think I would do different is to toss pasta with a little butter before the marinade.
This was so yummy! I followed some of the tips from other reviewers, and cut the Worstershire by 1 Tbsp. I also added mushrooms to the marinade, in the saucepan. I didn't marinate for very long, but it was still very good. I put the chicken in the broiler for just over 15 minutes, and it was absolutely perfect. I served over Pasta Roni's Angel Hair Pasta with Parmesan. It was a huge hit with the family. I will definitely make this again!
