Hot cooked pasta
I make this all the times and my family really loves it. I saute garlic and onions along with my chicken thin I put in some fresh broccoli, slice carrot, mushroom, and then I cook it very slow and some times I might have to add a little water to thin it out.
I was really disappointed in this one...after all these good reviews, I was surprised to find it just tasted like condensed chicken soup on top of chicken. Edible, but I wouldn't make it again.
I like this recipe. It's quick, simple and I always have the ingredients on hand. I like to add a little Italian herbs, salt & pepper to the chicken. Is a good dish when you want something mild & good for busy Moms. You can even cheat and use 1/2 tsp garlic powder if your in a hurry. ;) I know it's "scampi" but tastes good with plain old white rice too.
We added a little extra lemon juice, but it was fantastic, our kids are picky but they definitely went for seconds on this!
I was surprised at how easy and fast this was! I ended adding more water and additional lemon juice, because the sauce got too thick. Next time I'll double the sauce. My picky children liked it.
I didn't make this with pasta, but a barley dish. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken and lime juice instead of lemon. It was very good and even the kids liked it. My trick is that I brown the garlic separately and only add it at the end, so it keeps its flavor.
All really enjoyed the Chicken Scampi, but to be honest we made it into leftover Turkey Scampi. I put in enough turkey pieces for 4 servings and then prepared it as stated. I didn't have to cook it as long because the Turkey was already cooked. Since I didn't have to brown the chicken breasts, I also omitted the butter and fat free Cream of Chicken. I was wanting some color because it is all just a beige, so I added some chopped parsley and a small amount of green and red pepper. Just needed color. It is yummy and you'll se it on out table quite often.
This recipe is probably misnamed unless I'm misinformed about what scampi is, but whatever the case, it is a good solid very basic recipe for chicken. As written it is more child-friendly because adults would probably like a little more flavor. But isn't that the beauty of a recipe like this? It can be changed up in a variety of ways! For me the next time I'd add white wine rather than water and some herbs. When I made the pasta, I added more garlic, butter, and parmesan cheese. Thanks for a good meal.
