A well-known Italian restaurant chain makes a mint selling garlicky, lemony “chicken scampi.” We knew we could make a better version.
Why This Recipe Works
To re-create this Italian restaurant favorite for home cooks, we shallow-fried chicken tenders in a 12-inch skillet and just 2 tablespoons of oil and paired them with a garlicky sauce that we embellished with strips of tender red bell pepper. Just before tossing all the components together, we finished the sauce with a bit of butter to give it the proper consistency—ideal for swiping up with crusty bread or pouring over a bowl of pasta.
