Chicken Scampi

Image

This is a favorite at our house and so quick to make.  I never follow a recipe but will list how I make it and as always, you do not need to follow this perfectly.  You can adjust to your taste.

5-6 thin boneless chicken breasts (or regular pounded thin)
 Approx. 5 tablespoons garlic flavored olive oil (or regular)
1/3 cups white wine (any kind you have is fine I use pinot grigio or chardonnay)
4 Tablespoons butter
1 cup chicken broth
2-3 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
sprinkle salt/pepper

1 box angel hair pasta (or any pasta of choice)

Heat oil in skillet

place chicken and cook through (about 4 minutes per side if thin)  Remove and cover with tin foil when done

add wine to skillet and use spatula to scrap all the browned bits from skillet

let cook down about 3 minutes and add butter

let cook down again about 3 minutes and add chicken broth and remaining ingredients. 

cook approximately 5 minutes while cooking angel hair pasta. (you can add more broth if it cooks down too much)

Immediately serve pasta with chicken on top and spoonful of sauce from skillet

season with salt/pepper (you can add parmesan cheese also)
