Restaurant-Style Chicken Scampi

Restaurant-Style Chicken Scampi


"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.

If you love the chicken scampi at the Olive Garden, this isn't quite it, but it's not bad for an at home knock off either. As many reviewers have said, it's a little bland, so go ahead and spic...

I did as another reviewed suggested and made a white wine butter sauce instead of using the alfredo sauce. But I did everything else the same. This was a HUGE hit, my husband has already begged ...
