Olive Garden Shrimp Scampi

Olive Garden Chicken Scampi

This Olive Garden Chicken Scampi copycat recipe is perfect! Just as good as Olive Garden. If anything it might be just a little bit better.


If you were to pick up some chicken scampi from Olive Garden to do a side-by-side comparison you would see there’s no difference!

This is a major hit with my family and friends.

Many thanks and kudos to the person who did the copycat to this, they were spot on. I always make extra just so I can have leftovers.

  5. Roasted Garlic: Separate head of garlic into individual cloves still in 'paper'. toss in olive oil and wrap tightly in aluminum foil or a small pint sized dish with a lid. bake in 350* oven for 30 minute when the garlic has cooled to the touch you should be able to squeeze it out of the 'paper' shell of the individual cloves.
