Number of Servings: 8


    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


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
