Introduction

This is an awesome treat for a Friday night dinner with the family. We work hard all week long to watch what we eat and we usually want to splurge by the end of that week. Well, here is a good way to splurge a little but not go overboard. This is an awesome treat for a Friday night dinner with the family.

***Step Three*** Should be boiling while step four is being completed
Boil your linguine over medium high heat for 11 minutes then drain and place in a large serving bowl

***Step Four*** Combining Ingredients
Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add in your chicken and saute until almost done. Add your onion and mushrooms and finish cooking the chicken until done and onions are translucent.

Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup warm white sauce to your scampi. Stir the sauce and scampi until well incorporated and thickens until the consistancy of a thin gravy. Pour over chicken and cook for an additional 10 minutes to thicken and coat the chicken.

Pour chicken mixture over the hot pasta and serve immediately.
