Chicken Scampi

This chicken scampi recipe is so delectable that I'm often asked to double it when family members visit over the holidays. I also suggest preparing it with shrimp for a quick convenient alternative that's also delicious. —Janet Lebar, Centennial, Colorado

    Easy to make, but the flavors are pretty mild. 2.5 stars

    This is tasty, but there is something missing...some zing.

    I am a late bloomer when it comes to cooking so I don't deviate to much from recipes. I didn't have chicken so I just used veggies. No fresh tomatoes so used 1/3 can of diced. I added artichoke hearts and fresh spinach. I was mainly using recipe for the sauce. I am my biggest critic and I really enjoyed it. Hubby and 3yr old grandson chowed. Didn't even have left overs. I will def make this again. ~Thank you for sharing!
