    Default Chesapeake Bay Pasta Chicken and Shrimp

    Description: Quick and easy to prepare and tastes great (better than you may think from reading the recipe)

    This has been a hit with everyone I've served it to, and they have begged me to fix it again and again. In the time it takes for the pasta to cook, you have a scrumtious meal (and don't stint on the Old Bay... it works great as is). (from Bigoven for Windows)
    Serving Size: 4 to 5
    Time: 20 minutes or less
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 1 pound Chicken breasts boneless and skinless - cut into 1/2 inch strips
    2. 4 teaspoons OLD BAY Seasoning divided
    3. 1 tablespoon butter
    4. 1/2 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
    5. 1 cup heavy cream
    6. 8 ounces penne pasta cooked and drained
    7. 3 each Scallions sliced
    Preparation:
    1. Peel and devein shrimp (or better yet, buy them that way from the market and save yourself the job.

    2. Slice the chicken (that's easier done if partly frozen), and the scallions.

    3. **tip.. I mix the last teaspoon of Old Bay right into the container of cream and give it a shake, so it mixes evenly.
    Instructions:
    1. 1. Coat chicken with 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning. Melt butter in large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes per side.
    2. 2. Coat shrimp with 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning. Push chicken to one side of skillet; add shrimp. Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
    3. 3. Mix remaining Old Bay with cream. Add cream mixture, cooked pasta and green onion to skillet. Bring to a boil. Lower heat; simmer 5 minutes or until sauce thickens and pasta is heated through.

    Ron, it is yummy. I generally serve it with garlic bread, and maybe a salad if I'm not too lazy to cut one up.

    The entire dish is ready by the time the pasta cooks. Can't ask for much more than that, huh?

    You could also do it with all chicken, or all shrimp if you like, although I think the combo tastes the best.
