Number of Servings: 4


    1 tablespoon butter
    2 tablespoons flour
    3/4 cup milk, hot

    3 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons garlic, crushed
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    1 tablespoon dried cilantro (optional)
    2 teaspoons italian seasoning
    black pepper
    3/4 cup white wine
    1 cup chicken broth

    1/2 lb angel hair pasta, cooked and drained
    2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
    1 red onion, thinly sliced
    10 garlic cloves, roasted
    2 chicken breasts, sliced
    olive oil


For white sauce: Heat 1 tablespoons butter in sauce pan, add 2 tablespoons flour and cook for 2 minutes on med. heat. heat stirring constantly. slowly add 3/4 cup hot milk (hot so it won't get lumpy). Set aside. (Make sure that the white sauce is hot when adding to the scampi sauce).
For scampi sauce: Heat butter over low heat. add the garlic, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper and black pepper. cook for about 2 minutes on low heat. add the wine and chicken broth. stir until combined. (I usually cook mine for about 30-40 minutes). add 1/4 cup white sauce and cook till slightly thickened.
In a large skillet, saute chicken in a little olive till nearly done. add the peppers and onions, saute till chicken is done. add the sauce. saute until everything is warmed. add roasted garlic cloves. serve over pasta.
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 45 minutes. when the garlic has cooled to the touch you should be able to squeeze it out of the 'paper' shell of the individual cloves.
