Monday, December 9, 2013


If you have ever had Olive Garden's chicken scampi you know it's amazing!  This is the best restaurant inspired recipe I've ever made. It tastes exactly like it.  I swear I could sneak it into a to go box and you would never know the difference!  If you have a husband or boyfriend you'd like to impress I definitely recommend serving this delicious pasta. I was really impressed with myself after I made this lol.  My husband loved it as well.  I found the recipe here on FOOD.com  I just made a few modifications. 
Here is what you'll need!

2 cooked chicken breasts(sliced) I sauteed mine in a bit of olive oil
I marinaded mine in Olive garden's salad dressing first which the original recipe does not call for

(The original used a red onion)

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp italian seasoning
pepper

1 cup chicken broth
Directions
To Roast Garlic

Cut the top off your head of garlic, drizzle with olive oil wrap in tin foil and bake for 50 minutes-1 hour.

To make the White sauce
