Oh my goodness!!!! This was lick smacking good...full of flavor..easy...what more can I say? I omitted the wine and replaced it with a tablespoon of chicken bouillon.The odd thing is that I have never ordered chicken scampi before, I just thought it wouldnt have enough flavor for me, but this dish was packed with flavor. I used about 5 cloves of garlic as I love my garlic. I will definately try this again.

VERY good. We enjoyed this. I added way more lemons and served this over 1 pound of whole wheat pasta. We loved it. I increased the garlic and used a yellow pepper and used 1/2 and 1/2 in place of the cream. Yummy!

This was good, but I'll definitely tweak it next time. This was a bit too lemony and the veggies were overcooked for my taste. Next time I'll reduce the lemon juice, saute the veggies for only 5 minutes, and add some sliced mushrooms.
