This is a wonderful dinner that my mom and I came up with while trying to cook a seafood supper for the men. This meal is very delish and warming of the tummy.

Directions

  1. Place chicken breasts on a cutting board, and pound thin with a mallet.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and garlic. Place chicken in skillet and brown on both sides. Add 1 cup chicken broth, reduce heat to medium low; cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Gradually stir in flour, stirring until smooth. Increase heat to medium, and cook briefly until thickened. Stir in milk, lime juice, and tomato paste; cook until it begins to thicken, about 25 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup chicken broth to thin sauce, and warm through. Remove from heat, and stir in rosemary and shrimp.
  4. To serve, remove chicken, onions, and garlic to plates with a slotted spoon, and top with sauce.

YUCK...The sauce was so thick, I could have spackled the wall with it!!! 1/2 cup of flour was just way too much. Cardboard has better flavor. I tried to follow the recipe, but in the end couldnt save it. What a waste of ingredients!

It was pretty easy to make since it used common ingredients. I had no tomato paste, so I used a half a 16-oz can of Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes, which added flavor to the sauce.
