A delicious dish to serve over rice with sausage, chicken, and shrimp. Have plenty of hot sauce for those who like it! This is perfect for cold weather and Mardi Gras.

Ok, I can't believe I haven't rated this recipe yet... I've used it so many times. Two words, Easy and Delicious! SOMETIMES (If I have time) I will brown the chicken and sausage before putting it in the crock, also boneless skinless thighs work really well with this recipe too. I also substitute thyme rather than basil... I also have some 'secret cajun spices' that I will throw into the pot for good measure. Definately a keeper recipe.

I can't add or take away from any of the comments that have already been made. This was a great recipe for my 3 qt. crock pot. I made a few substitutions and it still turned out fabulous. I used chorizo instead of andouille, 1 bell pepper instead of two, and added two more cloves of garlic. It turned out perfectly, and I actually didn't have too much liquid because letting it cook longer thickened the sauce. Definite keeper.

I have never made Jambalaya before and this turned out great. I added cayenne pepper and paprika to spice it up a bit. I cut down on the broth because of other reviewers recommendations. I found this to be an easy recipe and will keep this recipe to make it again.
