Slow Cooker Shrimp Jambalaya

Submitted by: CDAVIS1126

Introduction

Great for those rushed dinners! Great for those rushed dinners!
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 in pieces.
    1/2 lb andouille sausage, or chorizo, diced
    1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1 cup fat free or reduced sodium chicken broth
    2 tsp dried oregano
    2 tsp cajun or creole seasoning
    1 tsp hot sauce or more depending on your tastebuds
    2 bay leaves
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    1 lb frozen, peeled and cooked shrimp, thawed
    cooked rice

Directions

In a slow cooker, combine chicken, sausage, tomatoes, onion, green pepper, celery and chicken broth. Stir in oregano, cajun seasoning, hot sauce, bay leaves and thyme.

Cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours or HIGH for 3 hours. Stir in the thawed shrimp, over and cook until the shrimp is heated through, about 5 to 10 minutes. Discard bay leaves and spoon mixture over cooked rice.

TIP: Sometimes I make this in the crockpot without the shrimp, store it for a day or two. You can even make this ahead of time, store in freezer and warm it through and add the shrimp at the end.

    Be careful on this one. The rice is not calculated in the calorie totals so it seems lower in calories than it is. - 7/6/08

    Tip: The Kroger store has frozen veges with all ingredients including with or without okra for only $1.19 in frozen vege isle(saves all that chopping and crying). Also, I added an additional can of whole kernal corn(low sodium) and let shrimp marinate in soy sauce before adding. FABULOUS!!!! - 11/25/09

    Amazing. My husband and my 2 yr old loved it. It tastes amazing. Only difference I made was I added a bit more andouille, used tony chacheres (sp?) cajun seasoning and omitted the hot sauce. Then we added it over rice...absolutely delicious, even when I had to double the recipe for houseguests. - 6/3/09

    This was delicious! I added more hot sauce and added the cooked rice directly to pot when I added the shrimp and it was great. My husband loved it! I actually used chicken-habanero sausage in place of the andouille and it was delish! - 2/11/08

  • Made this yesterday for the Super Bowl. Great flavor. My only negative, it was a little watery until you added the rice. Next time I will back off of the chix broth - 2/4/13

  • Has anyone noticed that thre ingredients call for a 1/2 lb of sausage but if you open up the ingredients for the recipe calculator there are only 2 oz of sausage for 8 people? - 1/2/12
