Quick & Easy Chicken Scampi!!

Lemme guess!  You're too tired to cook, but you're also tired of eatin' the same ol' sh!t.  Well, why not switch it up a bit by whipping up a big batch of chicken scampi?! Scope out just how easy this is to make!

Note! Shift+click on any image to see it full-size in a new window!

Get some water on the boil!  We're gonna need one lb of angel hair!

Grab your Sam's Club Rotisserie Chicken and get to deboning!

Ahh, nicely separated in under 10 min!
Set the au jus aside, put the meat on a cutting board, & chuck the crappola in the freezer for makin' soup later!

This chicken is looking good!

Get to hackin' it up into more manageable pieces!

We'll probably need two packets of Scampi seasoning for this much meat (approx 2 lbs)!.

$8.23 for 12 pkts? Not a bad deal on Amazon!
Get you some!

Don't forget the angel hair!  It doesn't take as long as other pasta!

We're gonna need to kick it up a bit w/ this Roasted Garlic & Herb seasoning from Weber!

Rough-chop the chicken!

Don't make the pieces too small!
Now toss this in a bigass frying pan...

...with a little rosemary-infused olive oil!
Toss and stir in the scampi seasonings w/ the chicken, oil, and some butter!
Add the roasted garlic & herb seasoning as you see fit!
I blew it and forgot to take pics of me doing this, but below is the final result!

Mmmm.... chicken scampi!!!!

Why, you may be wondering, didn't I use shrimp??
Two reasons!
1.) I didn't have any!
2.) I had a rotisserie chicken, so why the hell not?! :]
McCormick calls their seasoning "Shrimp Scampi" bec it sounds classier than "Chicken Scampi", but it can be used for either! Try it for yourself if you don't believe me!

Now that you know just how easy-peasy it is to make a damn tasty batch of chicken scampi, I would suggest you attempt to whip up a batch of your own!
Change it up a bit, why not?!
Toss in asparagus spears or artichoke hearts!  Maybe even serve it on a bed of spinach sauteed in scampi sauce!  The possibilities are endless!
