This is the super quick, Makes Dave Happy version! And Dave has been busy (now that the 3 feet of level snow is gone!) bringing up firewood to sell and burn, so I have to feed him now and again!
Dave doesn't like the taste of wine, so we kick it to the curb for this recipe! And I forgot to grab the camera for the chicken part, so don't judge!
1/2 pound shrimp, cleaned and pealed. If cooked, this recipe can be made mighty fast!
1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced thin
1 stick butter
In separate pot, cook pasta of choice! I was going pasta-free for low-carb so I did spaghetti for Dave...
Melt butter in big frying pan. Shake granulated garlic over the top of the butter. Repeat with parsley. (if using fresh garlic and parsley, use about a teaspoon of minced, fresh garlic, three tablespoons of chopped, fresh parsley)
Toss in chicken. Cook over medium heat, tossing with spoon while chicken cooks and creates a little broth. (If necessary, add a splash of water)
When chicken is cooked, remove with spoon, and throw in the shrimp while ol' Dave and Xavier enjoy a cup of coffee together: (these two are peas in a pod, heaven help the planet!!!)
My chicken, set aside, waitin' for the little shrimp friends to join in the party!
Add about a cup of water to make broth. Heat to almost boiling, cook or heat shrimp, when shrimp is done...
Spoon shrimp, chicken and broth over pasta and enjoy with a generous helping of Parmesan cheese, if desired!
And this is where sheer hunger took over and I forgot the camera again! I did my plate with just shrimp and chicken.... Dave got the whole deal, a big base of pasta, smothered in shrimp and chicken, the BRAT.
I do the chicken first because we have a few folks who don't like seafood, so this way, the chicken broth flavors the shrimp, but we don't have shrimp-taste in the chicken.
Without the pasta, this is a super-low-carb meal and delicious!
With the pasta, it's amazing, too! :)
The hens wanted to wish you a good and bountiful day! Good morning, ladies!
