Tarragon Creamed Shrimp and Chicken

1½ sticks unsalted butter
½ cup chopped green onions
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 cup chopped red bell peppers
2 cups thickly sliced fresh mushrooms
¾ cup dry white wine
2 cups coarsely chopped chicken breast meat
2 cups small peeled and deveined shrimp
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups half-and-half, scalded
Salt and freshly ground white pepper
Dash nutmeg (optional)
Dash paprika (optional)

In a large saucepan, melt ¼¤cup of the butter. Add the green onions and half of the tarragon. Cook, stirring, over medium-low heat until the onions are wilted, about 5 minutes. Add the red peppers, mushrooms, ½¤cup of the wine, and the chicken. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring until the chicken is opaque. Add the shrimp and the remaining tarragon. Cook, gently tossing, until the shrimp turn pink, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

In a separate saucepan, melt the remaining ½¤cup butter. Sprinkle the flour over it when the butter bubbles and whisk to blend. Add the half-and-half, whisking constantly, over medium-low heat until the sauce is smooth and thick. Add the remaining ¼¤cup wine and season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and paprika. Continue to cook, while whisking, for 2 minutes. Do not boil.

Meanwhile, bring the chicken and shrimp mixture back to a simmer and add the sauce. Adjust the seasonings. Serve hot.

Steamed green beans or fresh asparagus tossed with olive oil and butter is the only accompaniment you'll need.
