20 Min EASY Chicken Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta! Swap the shrimp for chicken in this classic recipe. All you need is chicken, angel hair pasta, butter, olive oil, garlic, white wine, lemon, and parsley. Perfect midweek dinner!
Most people associate scampi with shrimp and other shellfish, but guess what? This classic pasta dish works just as well with chicken.
The richness from the butter and olive oil are balanced by the acidity of the lemon juice and white wine. You also get a punch of garlic, a hint of heat from the red pepper flakes, and some freshness from the parsley.
The most important thing to remember with this recipe is to reserve some of the pasta cooking water. It helps to make a luscious sauce that brings all of the ingredients together.
This recipe is all about the sauce and the pasta. If you’d like more protein or fresh vegetables in your meal, feel free to increase the amount of chicken or throw in whatever veggies you have in the fridge.
