This recipe was very good. The next time I make it, I think I will cut back on the fresh parsley a little bit, the flavor was a little overwhelming.

A little weird but good. Will probably make again. I'll cut back on the butter and oil though to make it a little healthier.

I put the rice on first and by the time it was done my chicken scampi was ready. You can't beat having dinner ready in 20 minutes. Fantastic recipe!

I don't even know how many times I've made this recipe since I came across it - Thanks so much to Jan for sharing it! I really love this recipe. I even made it for a group meal at work a few mon...

Great Recipe...easy to make!

this was ok in taste, but needed lots of salt and grated cheese as per my hubby. for me it wasnt scampi like at all really.
