"This is just as good as the Olive Garden. On a difficluty scale from 1-5 this is a 3 to make. We just love it! Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I hope to make it soonest. If you make it before I do than I would appreciate your feedback. Thanks ! ZWT REGION: Italy."

"I use this recipe all the time! I even got some chicken scampi from the Olive Garden to do a side by side and there was no difference in taste! Many thanks and kudos to the person who did the copycat to this, you were spot on. I always make extra just so I can have leftovers, major hit with my family."
"This was WONDERFUL! It tasted just like the Olive Garden chicken scampi. The recipe is a little confusing, but if you cook a lot, you can decipher them. I initially had some trouble with the white sauce, but I dumped the first batch and tried again. I suggest that you only add a little flour to the butter at a time and use a whisk to mix it. I also used garlic salt and a little pepper to season the chicken. I think I might saute the chicken in a different skillet than the veggies next time. My veggies ended up too soft. Thanks for sharing!"
"This tasted good. I did have to tweak it a little as my white sauce turned out really thick and my scampi sauce reduced down quite a bit. I just added more chicken broth and wine and it turned out great. Also, for the chicken, I dipped the chicken in flour that had italian seasoning, paprika, and garlic salt in it. Then I fried it and followed the rest of the directions. Olive Garden's chicken always seems to have a light breading, and I've found the sauce sticks better to the chicken that way. Definitely a lot of work, but worth it if you love Olive Garden's chicken scampi!"
"This REALLY does taste like "Olive Garden's" Chicken Scampi!!!! I did lightly flour the chicken, and I sauteed the onion and green pepper for about 10 minutes prior to browning the chicken simply because we prefer softer vegggies in our pasta. I then pushed them to the side of the pan & browned the chicken. I WILL be KEEPING this recipe!! Thank you so very much for sharing!! Delicious!!"
"I think this recipe is a little too time consuming and I don't understand why it called for 2 sauces to be made. I actually started with the scampi sauce and added flour to the butter before the other liquids and made both sauces at one time. It came out great. Oh I added lemon juice also, because I can't imagine a scampi with out lemon."
"Dead on!! It's awesome!"
"My favorite meal at Olive Garden, now I can make it at home!
I followed the recipe measurements to the letter, but used a different combination of steps. I coated my skinless and flattened chicken tenders in self rising flour before saut?ing in EVOO. And combined that with saut?ed yellow & red bell peppers. i also strained my scampi sauce so it didn't have herbs and garlic bits. If you are looking for white wine recommendations, I used Gallo Family Pinot Grigio. Pretty tasty. And my kitchen is a mess now!"
"recipe reads like the one I am looking for but do hope it doesn't 47hrs."
"Very good. I used heavy whipping cream instead of milk. I also grilled the chicken and added sweet Italian sausage. I used a little too much red pepper, forgetting that it cooks in the sauce for so long, I only needed a pinch. I will definitely be making again. My daughter ordered the OG original last night and had some leftovers. In a blind taste test, my version of this recipe tasted better!"
"This is my favorite dish at the Olive Garden, and I order it every single time we go. This was pretty darn close to the real thing! It's a very time-intensive recipe, so make sure you take that into consideration. I had to add a considerable amount of salt at the end because the sauce had great flavor, but was definitely lacking that one ingredient. I will definitely be making this again!"
"I used this but tweaked it a little by buying the scampi sauce to save some time. Awesome. Family and friends love this recipe when I cook it. Kudos"
"Very good, but definitely takes a while! Make sure you have everything prepped before you begin. I added some parmesan cheese on top for some additional flavor!"
"This was a good recipe, the sauce smelled absolutely divine as it cooked, and the end result was delicious. The directions and the timing took a little thinking about, it's a good idea to read the recipe through carefully before beginning. I started with the scampi sauce, whipped up the white sauce in the microwave, and cooked the chicken while the scampi sauce was simmering. We all enjoyed this, I'm not familiar with the Olive Garden so I can't say how similar the recipe is, but it made an enjoyable meal! This was made for I Recommend tag game."
"This turned out wonderfully! I ended up tripling the recipe because of the size of my family and for future leftovers. The sauce didn't turn out as thick as I would've like, so I think I'll try adding some more flour/starch when I heat it up again. The chicken, however, was very tender and delicious! I pulled out an injector and put some of the wine/scampi sauce inside of the chicken, which made it even better!"
"The "flour" that Olive Garden uses to sear the chicken is Wondra. It works great!!"
"This is a good recipe. It doesn't take took long to make. You are looking at 5-6 minutes for the chicken and peppers, plus 4 minutes for the pasta. I only cooked the sauce for 15 minutes (start this when you pot of water on the stove). Next time I would reduce the amount of chicken broth, it got to be a bit much. Also, add a dash of Adobo seasoning."
"This is AWESOME!!! I will make this one over and over again! A definate must try!! Thanks!!"
"WOW we loved it!! Probably wont use as much red pepper next time but other then that we will make it again and SOON!"
"I have not had Olive Garden's chicken scampi but I have had many others and this one is one of the BEST EVER! It was very, very tasty. Thanks, kiwidutch! Made for alphabet chefs tag."
"Excellent, exactly like the Olive Garden original!!"
