Hey , everyone .
It's Julie today .
We'll be making chicken and shrimp pasta bake .
We're going to cook some chicken and shrimp , make a delicious Parmesan cream sauce .
And hopefully you'll love this as much as I did .
So let's get started .
I'm using two chicken breasts .
I seasoned it on both sides with salt free , all purpose , seasoning and some salt .
This is to taste , you may season this as much or as little as you like .
And the complete recipe will be on my website cooked by Jeli dot com .
We're then going to season our shrimp .
I remove the tails because we will be baking this and we're going to throw some cheese on top and I don't want you to struggle cutting the tails off while you're eating .
So season the shrimp , give it a good toss and then set it aside in a large hot skillet with some vegetable oil .
We're going to cook our chicken for about four minutes on each side depending on how thick your chicken is , but make sure to cook it fully through and also make sure not to overcook it because keep in mind that we will be baking this in the same skillet .
I cook the shrimp for about 40 seconds , 20 seconds on each side .
And then we are going to remove them from the skillet and get started on our sauce .
He didn't want to move .
You'll need some heavy cream .
We're going to cook the sauce in the same skillet unless you want your sauce to be extremely white .
In that case , you may cook it in a separate skillet and you will want to use white pepper instead of black pepper .
I let the cream thicken up a bit and then I grated some Parmesan cheese .
Season it well with salt and pepper taste it , make sure it tastes delicious .
Give everything a good stir .
Once the sauce is nice and thick and well seasoned , turn the heat off , chop your chicken into bite size pieces .
That chicken looks good .
I'm not gonna lie and then toss the chicken and shrimp in the skillet along with your choice of pasta I use .
But you may use to or whatever you have on hand .
Of course , you may serve this just as is and it will be delicious .
But I wanted to do a little something different place it in a casserole dish .
Now this part is optional .
But if you love cream cheese , make sure to throw some softening cream cheese in here .
Adds a lot of flavor and creaminess cream in a cream uh creaminess to the dish .
I love it .
Give it a good mix .
Top it off with some mozzarella cheese .
A little grated parm .
We are then going to place this under the broiler for a couple of minutes or until the cheese is completely melted .
This looks good .
It was good .
It was very creamy , well seasoned .
I really enjoyed this .
This was my second time making this and trust me , there will be a third .
I love this .
Give it a try .
Let me know if you do .
