Quick, Cheap, Easy Chicken Scampi- Family Friendly

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by something-different

I wanted a copycat version of Olive Garden's chicken scampi but wanted it to be quick and easy. So I took a several different chik scampi recipes and made one of my own. Even my picky 8y/o liked this, even though he picked out the bell peppers. :) It may look like a lot of ingredients but sooooo easy!

Omg i was in such a hurry i didnt even care what recipe i picked but i Loved this! i thot great no ratings means bad but i had to register to review lol. <br/>1)These were my changes, I did it for serving of 4 and, first of i used the whole 10oz can of cream of mushroom and half the pasta from box, cut the whole red pepper as well, <br/>2)wayy more garlicc!, i used minced and powder both, more italian seasoning and i needed more salt my self for chicken!<br/>3) i did butter but also some olive oil, better!<br/>4) it needed more lemon in my opinion so i did half of and a quarter of lemon, (for half of pasta box of course)<br/>5) the red pepper flakes are the icing for us but we use Arbol chillie pods and break them spicey and yummy!)<br/>6) i decided not to top it off with tomatoes jusst didnt want that cold tastless flavor with that yummy pasta taste. Thanks for recipie!!
