Creamy Lemon Scampi Chicken

What do you get when you pair garlic, butter and lemon? Scampi. It's one of those dishes that really gets me because it's not only good, it uses pantry staples making it easy to whip up anytime. It's been awhile since I've made shrimp scampi but with no shrimp on hand, I thought chicken would hit the spot... and it did for my guys! This Creamy Lemon Scampi Chicken was a twist on the classic scampi recipe where a creamy, luscious, garlicky, lemon sauce blankets juicy chicken breasts and served over rice or pasta...

So I can't take much credit for this recipe. In fact, I got some help from my friends at Campbell's Kitchen. I recently worked with them to try out some of their recipes and products, which helped me save some time on busy weeknights to get dinner on the table. This recipe was from their website and my favorite guys, The Baron and Joel, agreed this was a recipe I should make again.
