My husband found this recipe in an old Southern Living cookbook. He's made some adaptations and the result is incredible. This makes a very pretty presentation and people will be asking you for the recipe the second they taste it!

This recipe was awesome! I only used one stick of butter (1/2 cup) and did not use the onions and the recipe was still yummy. Can't wait to make it again!

This is one of my favorite recipes I have found on here. I make it all the time, but tonight I tried a new way. Last night I prepped all of the ingredients, with extra hot sauce (two tablespoons), but left out the shrimp and I put it all in my crockpot and put it in the fridge. In the morning I plugged it in and put in frozen chicken because we are big eaters. Two hours before we were going to eat I put the shrimp in the crockpot. It was absolutely amazing and took very little effort!!
