This recipe was delicious and a real hit with my kids (remember, I have teens, not little kids). Apparently Olive Garden makes a chicken scampi which you can find copy cat recipes for online. Those recipes, however, include a white sauce that is added to the scampi sauce. I chose not to do that, simply for the sake of saving time. Having eaten it without the white sauce, I have absolutely no desire to try the recipe with it. It didn’t need anything else in our opinions.
While omitting the white sauce cut down and preparation time and the number of pieces to think about, this is not what I would call an easy recipe. I had it ready in about 45 minutes, but I was constantly working on one or more parts. For that reason, I have written the directions to try and help you know what order to go in so that the things that take the most time get started first.
Chicken Scampi (Gluten & Dairy Free)
- 16 oz. gluten-free spaghetti (I used Tinkyada)
- 3 Tb. Earth Balance stick margarine or butter
- 2 Tb. minced garlic
- 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 3/4 c. white cooking wine (or dry white wine)
- 1 c. chicken broth
- pepper to taste
- 2 1/2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 large yellow onion
- 1 red bell pepper
- 2 Tb. oil or butter (I used palm oil)
When the water boils, add your pasta and get that cooking.
While the scampi sauce is simmering, slice the onion and pepper in thin slices. Add 1 tablespoon oil to a large skillet and sauté the onion and pepper until tender. While it cooks, slice the chicken breasts into thin strips. When they are done, remove the onion and pepper strips to a bowl. Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet and add the chicken strips. Cook and turn until the meat is cooked through.
After your pasta is done cooking, drain it and place it in a warm bowl. After the scampi sauce is done simmering, pour it over the pasta and toss to coat.
Place the onions, pepper, and chicken on a serving plate and place some on top of the pasta when serving it.
