Crockpot Chicken Scampi

Well, I made this recipe yesterday for the first time. It was SOOOO GOOD!! My house smelled amazing, but I really love garlic! I am pleased to say there were NO leftovers!!



The Menu:Crockpot Chicken Scampi

The Origional Recipe:
I got this off of babycenter which cyndy posted it from the Gooseberry Patch, favorite chicken recipes cookbook.
Chicken Scampi
25 min 10 min prep
SERVES 2-3 , 1 13x9 pan

4-6 garlic cloves, pressed
2 T fresh parsley, chopped
2 T lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
1/4 cup chili sauce
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, bite-size pieces
angel hair pasta or linguine, cooked per pkg directions
grated romano cheese, for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 450; grease a 13x9 pan.
In the pan, combine everything except the pasta and cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes (chicken should be white inside).
Serve over pasta, sprinkle with cheese.

The way I made it my own:
Well, I thought the crockpot sounded like a great idea! I have to double everything for the kids to eat too! I think it turned out great!

When you say half a cup of chili sauce you mean half a cup of chili sauce for hotdogs and hamburgers right?
