Chicken Scampi

I really think this tastes exactly like Olive Garden's, and it's way easier to cook than I thought. There's just a few components that are going at the same time, but it came together in about 40 minutes. It also makes a lot of sauce, so you can cut it down, or freeze it. This would also be nice for a romantic dinner at home for two.

2 sticks unsalted butter (has to be unsalted, because the cooking wine has lots of salt)
1 1/2 T garlic puree
1 1/2 T chicken bullion
1 12.7 oz bottle Chablis cooking wine
1 cooking wine bottle full of water
1 T cornstarch
1 pint heavy cream
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp marjoram
OR 1 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp black pepper

Melt butter in large skillet over med-low heat. Add garlic and sweat it for a minute or so, but don't let it get brown. Add rest of ingredients and let simmer for 15 minutes, while you make the rest. Stir occasionally.

Cook angel hair pasta according to package.

Coat chicken tenderloins in flour seasoned with thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. Saute in olive oil until done, remove to plate.

Saute red onion and red, yellow, and green bell pepper slices in chicken skillet until a little brown but still crisp.

Assemble on plate, and ENJOY!!!
