You can use boneless skinless chicken thighs or turkey instead of chicken tenders.
Chicken scampi is traditionally served with angel hair pasta, but you can use the pasta of your choice.
This dish has more than half the calories of the Olive Garden version!
Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days then reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
You can freeze the chicken tenders, but the rest of the dish won’t freeze very well.
