One Pan Chicken Scampi Recipe
When you hear the word scampi do you automatically think of shrimp scampi? For those who would like a yummy change and/or can’t eat seafood this chicken scampi is a delicious twist on this classic pasta dish. It’s all about the chicken, sauce and pasta and if you like more chicken or vegetables in your meal you can easily add more and use what veggies you have in the fridge!
Disclosure: I am participating in the Chicken Farmers of Canada campaign managed by SJ Consulting. I received compensation in exchange for my participation in this campaign. The opinions on this blog are my own.
It may be a super simple chicken and pasta recipe but it’s packed with rich and decadent flavours complemented by the wine and fresh herb toppings. I also love garlic and tend to use more but you can reduce or add more garlic depending on your preferences. Our recipe has a middle ground for the garlic if you will. It’s a filling and satisfying dish, wear loose pants, just saying.
As you can see in the photo above, bite size pieces of chicken breast are seared in my hot cast-iron pan with the butter until the chicken is a nice golden brown. Then will come the garlic, pepper flakes, Italian seasoning and white wine. It’s really a hardy dish thanks to the pasta and so full of flavour that you might just be craving it after you try it for the first time.
What kind of pasta do you use for chicken scampi?
We used linguini for this recipe but you can easily use spaghetti or my personal favourite angel hair pasta. The latter is usually the one I love to use most but I did linguini this time as it’s a little too easy to overcook angel hair pasta.
If you’ve been following Powered by Mom for a while now, you know that we like to support local and when it comes to buying chicken we only buy chicken Raised by a Canadian Farmer and it MUST have the logo below on the packaging.
Why Chicken Raised By A Canadian Farmer?
Canadian chicken is a healthy choice that is grain-fed, free of added hormones and steroids, and raised right here in Canada according to nationally-set, high food safety and animal care standards. We’ve shared several reasons in the past but I’m going to highlight one today as it’s even more important now in these challenging times when many small businesses are closing and/or struggling.
Canadian chicken farmers are committed to sustainability through innovation, by preserving the health of the land, providing value to Canada’s economy, & making affordable food for Canadians. That and the high quality of their chicken are more than enough reason for me to buy only chicken with that logo.

Chicken Scampi Recipe
This chicken scampi is a delicious twist on a classic pasta dish. It's all about the chicken, sauce and pasta giving you a scrumptious meal.
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 3 cups of white wine (or chicken stock if you can’t do wine).
- 1-1.5 cups of cherry or grape tomatoes
- ½-3/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
- ½ cup of butter
- Fresh basil (small bunch)
- Fresh parsley (small bunch)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1-2 tsp garlic (I like garlic so I personally do 3-4 tsp )
- Pinch of red pepper flakes
- 12 oz of linguini (small fistful)
- 1 small onion diced
- Chop chicken into cubes.
- Melt butter in a heavy skillet and sauté chicken until cooked. Stir in garlic, pepper flakes, Italian seasoning.
- Sauté diced onions with the spices.
- Pour in the white wine (or stock) and add pasta. Cook on medium heat until the pasta is soft.
- Stir in halved tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and chopped basil & parsley.
- Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
You can use chicken stock instead of wine.
You can add other veggies if you prefer.
See our post for a DIY Italian seasoning
As mentioned we like more garlic but we've put in a measurement for a median of garlic. Add more or less depending on your preference.
You can substitute the linguini for spaghetti or angel hair pasta. We love it with Angel Hair pasta but it cooks a lot quicker so keep an eye on it if using angel hair.

Doesn’t that look like it’s easy to make the chicken scampi? It really is quite easy! Here are a few substitutions that you can make as well.
Italian Seasoning. Don’t have it on hand? You can make your own blend with the spices below. Keep in mind that you will not use this entire mix for this recipe.
- 2 tablespoons dried basil
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 1 tablespoons dried rosemary
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
What other cuts of chicken can be used?
You can use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of the chicken breasts. They will have a different texture and you may need to cook them a little longer.
White wine: I tend to use whatever I have on hand but it’s always a good quality white wine. A decent white wine doesn’t have to be expensive. As mentioned you can also use chicken stock. Low sodium chicken stock could be used but it won’t have quite as much flavour.
I am getting hungry again just looking at my chicken scampi photos. Anyone else have a grumbling tummy? It’s not just me right?
I might just have to make some more chicken scampi this week as it’s just so delicious.
