Jambalaya
















1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
1 pound andouille sausage, sliced
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pound frozen shrimp without tails
Fresh parsley to sprinkle on top
I served this one with pasta but we also like it with rice.


In a slow cooker, mix the chicken, sausage, tomatoes with juice, onion, green bell pepper, celery, and broth. Season with oregano, parsley, Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper, and thyme.
Cover, and cook 7 to 8 hours on Low, or 3 to 4 hours on High. Stir in the shrimp during the last 30-45 minutes of cook time.
I cooked mine on low for 5 hours and it was not done, I have a new crockpot that does not cook the same as my old one did. I really like to cook mine on the stove but I wanted this to be ready when we came home from church so I went with the crock pot. The recipe is good and you might have a crockpot that will be done in the 3-4 hours mine was not done it five hours. This is one of the reasons i did what I wrote below and because some not liking shrimp.
**I took half of mine out of the pan because some do not like shrimp in my family then I added about 2 T cornstarch to 1/2 cup water and added it to the pot and cooked this for about 20 minuted before I added the shrimp and cooked until the shrimp was done.

It is, I made enough for 24 people and nine people finished it off, I was shocked. I figured we have it for leftovers.
