    I usually don't use recipes but this is a great simple one & you can use the butter/milk mixture as a basic cream sauce for many recipes or a gravy base.

    I would recommend doubling the flour & using the extra flour mixed in with the milk mixture (mix it in a seperate cup/mug before adding to milk to prevent lumps), if you prefer a thicker cream sauce. Next time I'll probably add sliced mushrooms to the onion/garlic saute. You could also use shallots instead of regular onion. Lots of things you could tweak & add to this basic recipe. I also added an addtl tbsp butter after cooking the chicken. It saute the onion/garlic butter.

    Delicious! I tried to make it a little healthier by using olive oil instead of butter and 2% milk and it still tasted very good. I'll definitely make this again!

    Mmmmmm, this was excellent! I had been craving scampi and found this recipe to be so easy to put together. I didn't add shrimp as I forgot to thaw it sooner! However, it was still delicious with just chicken. I bet its going to be just as tasty as leftovers!
