Recipe: Chicken Scampi

I’m going to blog more about cooking and eating. Maybe I’ll even blog a bit about food justice and food sovereignty as responses to the global food market that distributes food inequitably (and wastefully) creating false scarcity. I could even talk about self-care as a political act. For now, please enjoy this recipe.

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 lb white mushrooms
  • half a bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, sliced lengthwise into thirds
  • A white wine of your choice
  • Pasta of your choice (I recommend angel hair)
  • Parmesan cheese, grated

  • In large pot, boil salted water for pasta. (You want the pasta to be ready before the Chicken Scampi is done.)
  • In a skillet heat the butter over medium high until the butter/margarine melts. Add the parsley, basil, oregano and garlic and salt and mix together in the skillet. Stir in lemon juice and wine.

  • Then add the chicken and mushrooms and sauté for about 3 minutes or until white. Lower the heat and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. More butter/margarine can be added if needed.
  • Mix the Chicken Scampi into the pasta, and serve w/ a side of bread and salad. (I recommend some parmesan cheese on top of the Chicken Scampi)
  • Enjoy!
