Fall is here. I can’t wait to make all those sweet, warm, and delicious comfort foods. To me, Fall is the best time for early morning walks while admiring the foliage, sipping a warm cup of tea while reading at night.   I hope you are as ready as I am to welcome this season.

A creamy chicken and shrimp scampi is the perfect way to welcome the autumn of 2018

Marjie’s Creamy Chicken and Shrimp Scampi


2 chicken breasts

½ lb. raw shrimp

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp butter

1 onion, finely chopped

1 large tomato, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup white wine

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

½ cup chicken broth

¼ cup heavy whipping cream

½ cup half and half

½ tsp. paprika

¼ tsp salt

1 tsp of six pepper seasoning blend



Cut both chicken breasts lengthwise into pieces about ¼ inch thick. Season with salt and pepper seasoning. In a large skillet on med/high heat, add oil, once hot, add the chicken. Sauté the chicken until they are fully cooked.

Remove them from the skillet, add 1 Tbsp butter and the shrimp to the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked. Remove from the skillet.

In the same skillet, sauté the onions for about 3 minutes, stirring as needed until onions are tender.

Add the tomatoes, minced garlic, wine and cook for another 5 minutes.

Add the broth, heavy whipping cream, half and half and the seasonings. Stir and simmer 2-3 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken.

Add in the chicken and shrimp back to the skillet.  Add the parsley, and cook until the chicken and the shrimp are reheated.

I serve it with rice and peas.


I would love to hear from you. What would you serve with this creamy sauce?


  1. I absolutely love shrimp. The only thing that could ever make it better is adding a bit of chicken and a creamy sauce like you did here. Thank you for helping me plan my next meal! LOL!

  2. This looks amazing! I love shrimp scampi but it’s something I’ve never tried at home. My boys don’t eat much seafood, so adding the chicken gives us all something to enjoy in the dish.

  3. Hello, delicious meal made from my favorite things. This is one of those meals I’d order in a restaurant in a heartbeat, but never thought of making at home. Your recipes so easy to follow I have to give it a try!

  4. Yes, I am definitely ready for all things fall this season – I get more excited the older I get. This sauce looks like it could work for so many things. Yep, I get excited about cooking in the fall! 😉

  5. Now that the season has changed, I’m going to be cooking my little heart out. All summer, order-in was my best friend but now I’m ready to get down with soups and stews and roasts and oh my!
