Some of Kathy Kingsley's happiest family memories center on this simple chicken and pasta dish, which her uncle requested every year for his birthday dinner.
Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, mushrooms, chicken, salt, pepper, and paprika. Cook until the chicken strips are cooked through, about 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the defrosted peas and cook for 1 minute more, stirring frequently.
Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and cook for about 1 minute, stirring continuously. Add the half-and-half and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cook for 1 minute more, stirring frequently.
Remove the skillet from the heat. Add the Parmesan and mix thoroughly. Spoon the sauce over the cooked noodles and serve hot. Makes 4 servings.
