This chicken and shrimp skillet recipe is a stew-like combination, a delicious family meal with crusty bread or rolls or freshly baked biscuits.


  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken pieces
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 16 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons parsley (fresh, chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil (dried leaf)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (dried leaf)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (plus more to season chicken)
  • 1 dash pepper (plus more to season chicken)
  • 1 1/2 pounds shrimp (raw, shelled, cleaned, and deveined; about 1 pound if shells have been removed)

Steps to Make It

  1. Pat chicken dry.

  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; brown chicken slowly, turning once to brown both sides. Pour off some of the excess fat.

  3. In a bowl combine tomato sauce, wine, onion, garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper; blend well and pour over chicken. Cover and simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes, until chicken is tender.

  4. Add shrimp to the sauce and cook for another 10 minutes, or until shrimp are cooked through.

  5. Serve as a stew with crusty bread or biscuits.
