    Love this recipe! I use rotisserie chicken instead of shrimp, simply because it is easier for a quick week night meal. The last time we made them I froze the excess and I used it tonight for an egg roll filling! Dipped in a sweet and sour sauce delish appetizer! What could be used instead of chicken broth? Could I forgot that completely or will it alter flavor of it severely? Allergic to MSG so don t want to risk it.
