Recipe: Chicken Scampi

This is an old recipe that my college rookie Julie gave me a while back. She made it a few times when we lived together, and it always reminds me of her when I make it, and those good old college days. She originally got the recipe from the Creme de Colorado cookbook, and altered it to fit her own tastes and ease.

Here is the delicious recipe:

Chicken Scampi
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup onions (green or white)
1 Tbsp minced garlic
juice of 1 lemon (or 1/4 cup juice)
2 lb chicken breasts-- boneless, skinless and cut into 1/2" pieces
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh parsley (or several Tbsp ground)
1-2 tomatoes, or one 15 oz can
1 bell pepper, chopped
RICE or buttered noodles

In skillet, hear together butter and olive oil, and sauté onions and garlic. Add lemon juice, chicken, salt, pepper and parsley. Continue cooking, stirring constantly for 5-8 minutes, or until chicken is done. Add tomatoes and peppers. Heat through. Serve over noodles or nice. Serves 4-6.

Let me know if you try it! I'd love to hear your review!

One of my favorite Bible stories of oil...

1 Kings 17:7-15

Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the Lord came to him: “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” 10 So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” 11 As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.”

12 “As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”
13 Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. 14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’”
15 She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family.
