Not Really Chicken Scampi Recipe Reviews - (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
Liked the sauce a lot. I did add a bit more wine than called for and also a few dashes of basil. The only real complaint I have about the recipe is that the sauce was very thin and wouldn't stay with the pasta. My daughter said we should have served it in a bowl. I thought about thickening it, but then I opted not to as I thought scampi is usually a thin sauce I think. I made a technical error and went with orcchiette pasta which was not a good match at all. I wanted a different shape, but that was not a good one. Loved the brightness the lemon adds to the sauce as its added at the end.

I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper & Italian seasoning, cooked the chicken in the butter and oil for a few minutes and then added the onion, garlic and mushrooms. I didn't see the point in dirtying additional dishes. I served this over fresh spinach pasta with a crisp salad and garlic bread. BF loved this and has already requested that I make it again. I think some extra garlic and fresh basil would be a nice addition to this dish.
