“Coated chicken tenders tossed with hot cooked pasta, bell pepper, onion, and garlic in four cheese Alfredo sauce. This is a delicious, rich chicken scampi very similar to that served at a well known Italian restaurant chain. Perfect with a green salad with Italian-style salad dressing and breadsticks!”

  1. Place chicken and flour in a large resealable plastic bag; seal bag and shake to coat. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Shake excess flour off chicken; cook and stir in hot oil for 4 to 5 minutes each side, or until golden brown and cooked through (juices run clear). Remove from skillet and place in a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain, reserving 2/3 cup cooking water, and return pasta to pot. Set aside pasta and cooking water.
  3. Wipe skillet with paper towel. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in skillet over medium heat. Add green bell pepper, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, onion, and garlic and cook and stir for 3 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook 3 minutes more or until vegetables are tender.
  4. Stir in Alfredo sauce, cover and heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add to reserved pasta in pot, then add reserved cooking water and chicken. Toss to mix, pour into serving bowls and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

This recipe almost has it right except for the Alfredo Sauce. In the resaturant not mentioned it is a white wine butter sauce. I make this all the time we LOVE it but I do it right! Sauted chicken strips in olive oil 1/4 cup with salt and pepper. Remove from pan leave bits in bottom. Add peppers and onion to pan and saute til tender not too soft, then also remove from pan. Add more olive oil if needed you need 1/4 cup then add 3-4 cloves of garlic minced saute til soft and slightly brown be careful not to burn. Add 3 T flour and wisk then add 1 cup dry white wine to deglaze pan scrapping all bits with wooden spoon. let reduce down on med heat. Add 1 can chicken broth when thick add 1/4 cup cold butter in pieces stir well. Check for seasoning may need addtnl salt and pepper. Add back in chicken and pepper&onions to rehaeat serve over fav pasta! yum yum and the real deal!



I love chicken scampi at the Italian restaurant chain and hated this one. The alfredo sauce is all wrong for the recipe. Try Chicken Scampi II. It tastes much more like the recipe at the Italian restaurant.



Just like the Olive Gardens I love to make this for friends, I add a pack of McCormick, creamy garlic Alfredo pasta sauce blend and it is great,
