  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat oil in large pot over high heat. Cook and stir shrimp, turning occasionally, until pink, 2 to 3 minutes.  Remove from pot; reserve.

Note

Option (for a Smoother Sauce): Place chicken and shrimp on platter and keep warm.  Carefully place almond sauce mixture in food processor or blender container.  Process or blend on high until mixture is blended and smooth.  Serve sauce over the chicken and shrimp.
