This recipe that I threw together one day became one of my son's favorite dinners and so I decided to serve it to company. Since then it has quickly become one of the dishes most requested by friends and family. It is easy to fix, but tastes like allot more time and effort went into it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan, add garlic, red pepper and cubed chicken. Sauté until the chicken is no longer pink.
  2. Sprinkle flour over the sautéed chicken and continue cooking, scraping up the browned bits from the chicken, until the flour just starts to turn a light brown. Add remaining seasonings and the chicken broth, stirring until sauce thickens.
  3. Add cream cheese, cheddar and green chilies to the sauce. Stir until the sauce is smooth and heated through. Add shrimp, stirring gently again until the shrimp are heated as well. Serve sauce over cooked linguine or gentle fold linguine into the sauce to serve.
