This is an excellent dish! I followed the recipe to the letter, and we loved every bite of it. This will be a keeper! Thanks for sharing.<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Creole and Cajun for The Apron String Travelers
A great gem of a recipe! Came together quick and the chorizo and spices smelled divine while simmering. I used a meatless soy-based chorizo and served atop shiratake noodles. This would also be delicious over rice. The only thing I would do differently next time is to cut the chicken breast into chunks before cooking it as the breast I used was rather large and didn't cook all the way through the first time until I cut it up and placed it back into the simmering sauce. Thanks, Boomette! Made for 123HW.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS DISH! The combo of meats in this spaghetti dish is so, so satisfying! The chicken breast used was a large one, & the shrimp were small! And, although I usually like my spaghetti as long as I can get, for this recipe I broke it into 2-to-3-inch pieces! There were just the 2 of us & we found the leftovers to be just as tasty as the initial meal! Definitely a nice new KEEPER for me & mine! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
