Restaurant-Style Chicken Scampi
I did not read the other reviews until after I had purchased the ingredients or I might have made the white sauce from scratch. That said, the restaurant version of this used to be my favorite meal there. A couple of years ago we went gluten free, so bye bye scampi. I was able to use this recipe to make a pretty close replica. I did buy Classico 4 cheese alfredo (it's gluten free) and added seasoning to my rice flour mix for the chicken. I also added a tablespoon of butter and 3 large cloves of garlic, as well as subbing the chicken broth for the pasta water. Gluten Free pasta creates an extremely starchy water so I would not have used that regardless. We have 1 tiny serving left. My extremely picky 17 & 12 year olds had seconds. That rarely happens, so I'd say this is a keeper!

Marinade for Chicken
I made no other change except to use olive oil, and drop the black pepper back a bit more than half as my kids don't like anything that they perceive to be "spicy." This has to be the best marinade for chicken I've used. Ever. I have Zaycon chicken, which tends to be a bit tough as it's not injected with anything. I wanted to marinate overnight, but forgot to put it together until about 4pm this afternoon. I put it on the grill at 6:30 and was sure it would be tasteless and tough. It was delicous, juicy and tender. Just the right amount of "spice" and fabulous flavor. I am already wondering when we can have some family over so I can make it again.

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs
I was on the hunt today for a ground chicken recipe and ran across this one. I always worry about ground chicken being dry, but this one was exceptional. I followed the recipe other than omitting the red pepper flakes (the 1 tsp of black pepper was plenty hot for us) and used a teaspoon of garlic salt, a teaspoon of garlic powder and 2 minced garlic cloves in place of the 1T of garlic powder. We also have to do everything gluten free, so I used gluten free breadcrumbs. Worked great! This will get added to my personal collection of GF recipes!
