I'm not sure which spicy shrimp recipe you're referring to, but protein-wise, it'd be the safest and most similar alternative. Cut it to the same size and don't let it dry out (assuming you're using white meat). Dark meat might be a little more forgiving, but the fattier feel will take it farther away from shrimp.
My simple response is ... why not !
