  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp, celery, shallots, and chiles in an even layer in skillet and let cook for 1 minute, without stirring. Turn shrimp and add wine; let reduce to 2 tablespoons, about 30 seconds. Add chicken broth and simmer until it begins to thicken, about 1 minute more. Stir in butter until completely melted; add lemon juice.

I wanted to make this dish and had everything on hand except the shrimp. Since we weren't planning another trip to the grocery this week, I substituted chicken for the shrimp. I did everything else the way it was done with the shrimp. My husband LOVED IT!!
