This is a recipe I got from my mom, I have no idea where she got it. I have made this several times and it's always delish. If you look at what scampi is, this came from wikipedia: In the USA, "scampi" is often the menu name for shrimp in Italian-American cuisine. The term "Scampi", by itself, is also the name of a dish of shrimp served in garlic butter and dry white wine, served either with bread, or over pasta. The word "scampi" is often construed as that style of preparation, not an ingredient, hence the seemingly redundant "shrimp scampi" or the seemingly impossible "chicken scampi".
- Cut chicken into separate pieces, rub with salt and pepper. In butter and olive oil, saute pieces of chicken, then add chopped onions and pressed garlic, port wine, tomato sauce, basil. Cover and cook for 30 min or until chicken is done. Before serving add shrimp, cook for 3 to 4 minute.
- We serve this with steamed basmati rice. it's very yummmeeeee.
