    This was so delicious! I love Jambalaya, but have always been intimidated a bit, and have never tried making it. This was so easy. My husband and I loved the flavors. Will definitely be making this again :) - 8/31/12

    Yummy! I substituted the chicken with 1# shrimp & used the closest thing to the liquid suggestions that I had which was chicken broth & tomato sauce. Still was awesome! The prep was fairly easy & cooked 3 hours on HI. I will definitely make this again & add canned tomatoes & maybe some okra too. - 11/9/10

    We love this recipe - it is on our meal planner at least once a month. We leave out the celery since my hubby hates it and we have started doing this on the stove instead of in the slow cooker because it cooked too fast in the slow cooker for us to leave it there for the day while we were gone. - 5/23/10

    Delicious, delicious, delicious! I added the shrimp and also added a can of diced tomatoes near the end. I hate celery, so I skipped the celery and the end result was absolutely tasty. - 10/30/09
