ingredients

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.

    We love this recipe. I have made it many times. Instead of chicken, I used brocolli. Shrimp and broccolli scampi.....what a great meal!! Thanks for the recipe.

    This was super easy and fast to make. My whole family liked it (which is a rare occurance at my house). Thank you for the great recipe! Next time I will probably add a bit more garlic and some lemon to add more flavor.

    I like quick easy meals and this definitely qualifies. The fact that it's tasty as well is a bonus. I used cooked frozen cocktail shrimp as this was what I had in the freezer, and added about 1 cup of bay scallops. Sprinkle with a little fresh grated parmesan. MMMMMMM Wonderful.

    I made this last night and it was pretty good. It could have used a little more flavor, but I was too tired after work to go looking through my cabinets for something to add. My husband loved it-- I made it with chicken since shrimp isn't on our budget right now, and the chicken came out very nice and moist. I would definatley try it again, and maybe throw something else in there to give it more zip.
