Chicken Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta

I am so excited to share one of my families most favorite pasta dishes with you today! It is my Chicken Scampi Recipe and it is so good that me and my husband always fight over the leftovers the next day! Have you ever ordered the Chicken Scampi from Olive Garden? This is where I first fell in love with this dish. Angel hair pasta covered in a dreamy creamy garlic sauce mixed with caramelized red onions and bell peppers. Then topped with chicken tenderloins, seasoned with salt and pepper, coated in flour, then pan-fried in some olive oil. Although I love Olive Gardens chicken scampi, I honestly prefer my own. Does it taste better? I will let you be the judge. This dish is perfect in so many ways. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Key Takeaways:

  • In this Chicken Scampi recipe, we swapped shrimp for chicken and it takes 20 minutes to make.
  • Lemon juice and white wine are balanced with the richness of the butter and olive oil.
  • Chicken Scampi works well with chicken as it does with any shellfish.

“The most important thing to remember with this recipe is to reserve some of the pasta cooking water.”
