      Ok - so when my husband comes in to find out what I am cooking because "it smells soooo good", well that gets you 3 stars - automatically, but then you factor in the ease of the recipe and how much we both enjoyed it, it is an easy 5 star meal. I made very few variations, just roasted red peppers (jarred on hand) and added some smoked paprika - it was yummy!

      This is an older TGI Friday's recipe - they don't have this on their menu any longer, and I was excited to find it on here. This was on the menu when I worked there in college back in the mid-90's. I thought this was very similar to the original and while it didn't have quite the punch, it was very good and very easy.

      Wow. I had the Spicy Cajun Chicken and Shrimp at Fridays last night and absolutely loved it. So I was excited to make it at home for my family tonight. This recipe is NOTHING like Fridays. It's not terrible but I was extremely disappointed. If you are looking for the Friday's experience in your own kitchen, look elsewhere.
