Chicken Scampi3

Lemon Chicken Scampi

written by Julie Cohn
This is a deliciously easy lemon chicken scampi recipe, rich with the tangy flavor of fresh Parmesan cheese and garlic.  Serve over pasta or with rice, and make a little extra lemon sauce to drizzle. My husband said that this was the best thing I have ever made (he says that a lot, so I don’t know if I should take his word for it), but my whole family enjoys this every time I make it!

Lemon Chicken Scampi

  • 3-4 Boneless, skinless Chicken breasts
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 c. Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 c. grated Fresh Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  •  1/2 stick Butter (1/4 c.)
  • 1/4 c. Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 4 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 c. Dry White Wine
  • 1/3 c. Half and Half
  • 2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut chicken into 2 x 3 inch (approx.) chunks.  Crack eggs into a bowl and beat.  Mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a large plastic bag.  Dip chicken chunks in egg and place in bag of bread crumbs.  Shake vigorously to coat chicken.  Remove from bag and place on a plate.   Heat olive oil in a fry pan on medium high heat. (I use an electric fry pan on 350 degrees.)  Add chicken and fry on 4-5 minutes on each side until nice and brown.  Remove from fry pan and place in a casserole dish.  Place in the oven to finish for ten minutes.

Wipe out fry pan and reheat.  Melt butter on low heat.  Add olive oil and mix together.  Add garlic and slowly saute 2-3 minutes. (Be careful not to burn the garlic.  Add the lemon juice to the butter/olive oil mixture and simmer 2-3 minutes.  Add chicken and cook in the lemon mixture for 2-3 minutes. Add wine and stir.  Mix half and half and Parmesan cheese and blend into the chicken mixture.  Cook an additional 2-3 minutes.   Serve over pasta, spooning the extra lemon sauce over the chicken.  This goes perfect with my creamed spinach recipe.
