My family loves this recipe. It is a little spicy for the younger kids. But the older ones love it. I like that I can skim out the shrimp for those that don't like it and still have chicken in it for them. I make it 3 to 4 times a year.
I made this for a pot luck - well received. I felt the spices were a little overwhelming for the shrimp so I may tweak it just a little next time.
I thought this was an excellent make ahead dish.will definitely make again.
How can I scale this down for two people?
