I LOVE Shrimp Scampi at Red Lobster. It is soooo good! So, I thought maybe I could rearrange some ingredients and make some Chicken Scampi. Heck yes! I don’t “dabble” in concocting my own recipes very often….but this one turned out pretty good!
The hubby even mentioned several times that he liked it. It was sort of refreshing, a good change from our usual chicken dishes.
4-6 garlic cloves
2 Tablespoons parsley
2 Tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine
1/8 cup lemon juice
2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1. In a small bowl, combine ALL ingredients except the chicken.
2. Arrange the chicken in an ungreased baking dish. Pour the combined mixture over the chicken.
4. Serve over the pasta of your choice.
I think this meal is perfect for winter-when you are needing something light and fresh to take away the winter blahs. It’s too cold to grill, but you’re tired of soups and casseroles. What do you think?
