recipe: chicken scampi

Do you like garlic? If you don’t… keep moving ahead in your feed reader or blog list or whatever. But if you like garlic- LOVE garlic- you’ll want to make this.

It’s by no means a quick prep meal. Kinda messy, lots of dirty pans, a bunch of steps. But seriously, it’s worth it. It’s so good. And I just save it for the weekend when I have more time for cooking involved meals and have someone around (Dan!) to wrangle the girls while I hide in the kitchen where it’s quiet (There is a method to my madness, you see!!! I’m an EVIL GENIUS.)

The full recipe is below in detail, but the basic steps: make a buttery, garlicky scampi sauce.

Then make a buttery, milky thick sauce that you’ll later add to the buttery, garlicky sauce.

Eat. Then go get a piece of gum or something. You stink :)


  1. Sounds phenomenal! I LOVE garlic! I can totally see how this would need multiple cutting boards, bowls, pans, steam & butter fat flying everywhere…I’ll need to hire someone to come clean the kitchen when I’m done making it, but, oh, it sounds so good!

    Thank you!

      oh it is definitely messy! I’m a messy cook to begin with (I get… kinda into all the chopping and stirring LOL) but this one makes a big mess. Totally worth it. The splatter screen is my friend :)
