    Butter? Shouldn’t it say margarine?

    What about “scampi”? There aren’t any in the recipe, but scampi is a member of the lobster family, not a style of cooking. I thought the recipes here were supposed to be kosher.

    • Scampi is a type of prepation that usually does refer to shellfish, but in this case is made with chicken and therefore can be made kosher.

        Actually, no, scampi is NOT a type of preparation (or prepation). It is an unclean animal that can never be kosher. The method of preparation used in this recipe may also be used for other forms of protein, but the term “scampi” specifically refers to a life-form, not a cooking method. Some countries’ food-labeling laws even specify which animal can be called “scampi” – Nephrops norvegicus.

        • Thanks for the information, I see some differing information, it seems that it can refer to both a type of fish and a preparation technique. Anyways, we didn’t invent the idea of chicken scampi either and there is no non kosher animals in this recipe.

  3. The recipe sounds very good are we going to try it or argue over what it is called? I for one will try it this week-end after break the fast.
