Introduction

This is also great if you do 1/2 chicken and 1/2 shrimp. Green Beans are awesome in this dish and I don't even care for them normally! Makes a great one pot dish, better than take out! This is a double recipe and freezes well - I make some for dinner and freeze the rest into lunch or dinner sized portions and reheat in microwave once thawed. YUM!
