Chicken Scampi

Sunday, July 13, 2008

2-3 chicken breasts, sliced
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
1 small onion, chopped
10 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 c butter
1/2 c white wine
1 c heavy whipping cream
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Pasta of choice for four

1.) Prepare pasta.

2.) While pasta is cooking, add butter, chicken, and vegetables to a large frying pan over medium heat. Sauté with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning until vegetables are tender. Add wine, cook until wine is reduced.

3.) Add cream. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened.

4.) Spoon over pasta. Serve warm.

When I use this recipe with farfalle or other small pasta, I like to cook the sauce together with the pasta for a bit before serving. It's not so easy to do that with angel hair pasta, though.

This is a modified recipe. Thanks to the Alexandria Girls' Trifecta for the inspiration. Their recipe does not appear that I can tell, but it was Leeann who first served us scampi.

Awh - I'm glad you're enjoying the recipe! I do have yet to post it on the recipe site - you beat me to it :)
Love the new profile pic, by the way!

Well, we did modify the recipe a bit to make it less complicated, using cream instead of white sauce, so you should still post yours!

Glad you like the pic! Pete was a dear the other day and let me finally get a few minutes to concentrate on a good one. You know how I can photograph people as they are? It's really hard to do on myself when I'm trying to pose for it. There's this split second of reality before I enter the pose. My mad pics come out more real than my nice ones... :-P
