Chicken and Shrimp Casserole

Source: Fix it and Forget it Lightly

I have to say that after (thoroughly) reading the ingredients and directions from this recipe, both Rick and I were a little skeptical. First off, it called for the chicken to be cooked first, which seemed odd to me because the crockpot can cook chicken just fine. Second, the recipe didn’t specify if the shrimp should be cooked first or not (but we assumed it did).

It turned out decent, though. The chicken was fine. The shrimp, however, didn’t fare so well. It shrunk and dried up and the texture was off. It didn’t taste bad, but if I made the dish again, I would probably leave it out completely, or just add it at the end so it didn’t simmer all day with the rest of the ingredients.
