I used shrimp instead of chicken, and have made a similar recipe before, but couldn't remember where it was or how I made it. I liked it a lot, but the nutrition facts have me thinking that I'm not going to make it anytime soon! Lots of fat and calories to it, and am trying to watch our saturated fats. Also, no amount given on the cayenne. I used 1/2 tsp and liked the heat, but added some crushed red pepper to the shrimp to add to it a bit.
My family loved this! I have been forbidden to buy the boxed mix ever again, and must always make this recipe. Thanks for posting it here.
