Crockpot Jambalaya


Recipe Description
My "faster" version of Rachel Ray's Jambalaya.​
Preparation Steps:
Chop chicken, sausage, onion, pepper, celery. Open stock and can of tomatoes.
If shrimp is frozen, let thaw and drain.
Cook your rice.
Once all is in, no peeking, no stirring (it will cook better.)​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
10-45 min plus cooking​
Ingredients:
Cooked rice to serve with.
1 Tbs olive oil
2 full, large chicken breasts (4 pieces), cut into ¾ inch pieces
1 pound andouille or chorizo smoked sausage, sliced into ½ inch pieces
16 cooked, peeled, deveined shrimp (optional – I opt out)
Celery heart – 4-5 stalks chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced (I use jarred)
1 can (14oz.) chicken stock
1 Tbs each cumin and chili powder (Smoked chili powder is too hot for my family)
6 shakes Tabasco sauce
1 can (28 oz.) fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1 bay leaf
1 tsp thyme (can use 6 sprigs fresh)
(optional 2 Tbs cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbs water – for thickening just before serving)​
Serves:
5​
Directions:
I place everything (except the rice, shrimp, and cornstarch mixture) in the crockpot. Yes, chicken is raw, and sausage not browned. I let her rip on low for 8-12 hours or on high 4-6. Just prior to serving I add thickener and let it cook about 5 minutes more. If you wanted, the shrimp could be stirred in at the same time as the thickener.
This is an easy version of Rachel Ray’s Jambalika, brought about by my lack of ambition at 7pm or later, when I’m starved.
You could make this in about 45 minutes on the stovetop- cook celery, pepper, and onion with oil, add chicken and sausage, garlic, spices, then stock and tomatoes, adding shrimp and cornstarch mixture at the very end. Serve with rice.
Enjoy!​
