DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter and olive oil in skillet over medium high heat.
  • Add garlic, saute for approximately 30 seconds.
  • Season shrimp (or chicken) with salt and pepper to taste, and add to the pan.
  • Cook shrimp thoroughly, being careful not to overcook, flipping once-cooking time will depend on size of shrimp, but with medium shrimp, cooking time is approximately 5 minutes.
  • If using chicken tenderloins, follow above instructions, adjusting cooking time as needed to thoroughly cook chicken.
  • If using both chicken and shrimp, decrease amounts to 1/2 lb of each.
  • Add chicken first, cook until almost done, then add shrimp, to prevent shrimp from overcooking.
  • Increase heat to high, and add 1/2 to 3/4 of the chicken broth and sprinkle with parsley.
  • Allow broth to heat through, check for seasoning, adding additional salt and pepper if desired.
  • Pour over cooked fettucini or linguini, stir well, and serve with a slice of warm garlic bread and a tossed salad.
