Chicken Scampi

Recipe from Joelen's Culinary Adventures

J loves scampi, and we are both big fans of garlic.  This recipe seemed pretty easy, and it came together in under 25 minutes.  We both thought it was really good, though I overdid it on the noodles.  I always do - I have a horrible eye for knowing how many to make.

3 T butter
2 T olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c white wine
2 T lemon juice
1 1/2 t Italian seasoning
1 T fresh parsley, minced
3 medium bell peppers (red, green, yellow), seeded and sliced thin
1 medium red onion, sliced

In a large skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium high heat until butter is melted.  Add garlic and saute until fragrant.  Add the chicken along with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and brown on all sides.

Deglaze by adding wine, lemon juice, Italian seasoning and parsley to the skillet, stirring to pick up any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet.  Lower the heat and allow the chicken to simmer about 10 minutes.

Add peppers and onions and cook until tender - 7-10 minutes.  Serve over pasta, rice or potatoes.
