Olive Garden Chicken Scampi

White Sauce:
1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
3/4 cup milk, hot

Scampi Sauce:
3 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
black pepper to taste
3/4 cup white wine
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup white sauce

Remaining Ingredients:
1/2 pack angel hair pasta, cooked and drained
bell peppers, thinly sliced
red onion, thinly sliced
10 cloves roasted garlic
2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, sliced

For White Sauce: Heat 1 tbsp. butter in saucepan, add 2 tbsp. flour and cook for 2 minutes on medium heat. Heat stirring constantly. Slowly add 3/4 cup hot milk and stir (hot so it won't get lumpy). Set aside.

For Scampi Sauce Heat butter over low heat. Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper and black pepper. Cook for 2 minutes on low heat. Add the wine and chicken broth. Stir until combined. Add 1/4 cup white sauce and cook until slightly thickened.

In a large skillet, saute chicken in a little olive oil till nearly done. Add the peppers and onions, and saute until the 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 small piece of aluminum foil or a small pint sized dish with a lid. Bake in 350 degree 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.
