Last week, I had taken chicken out to make a new dish, but as the day progressed I really wasn’t in the mood to cook…GASP! So I decided to make this quick and easy Chicken Scampi over Fettuccine instead.

Chicken Scampi over Fettuccine

You all know I don’t eat shrimp, but the rest of my family loves it. I make it for them on occasion and when I do I generally make a chicken version for me; similar to this one. It was delicious and ready in under 30 minutes. Now that’s my kind of meal! ~Enjoy!

    Are there any substitutes for vermouth?

      You could use a bit of white wine vinegar or if you’d like to add a little lemony flavor, fresh lemon juice would work too.
