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.
This recipe is very easy to make. I followed the directions as indicated, however, I used less broth as other reviewers suggested, using 3/4 of a 14.5 oz can versus a 15.5 oz can. Even with this reduction, it was still a bit too liquidy. While my fiance and I liked the dish, it was a little on the bland side for our tastes, and we ended up adding quite a bit more Tabasco to the portions on our plate after I served it. This helped a lot; however, it would have tasted better had I added more Tabasco as I was cooking and gave it time to soak in. While the dish was good, I probably wont make it again and will search for a spicier recipe that suits our tastes a bit more.
This was great-- easy and really tasty. I used cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce which made it spicier, and substituted liquid smoke for the sausage to make it low fat/low cal.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I took the advice of other viewers and only added 1/2 of the broth so there wouldn't be too much liquid. Very easy to just throw everything in and leave for the day.
My husband and family really enjoyed this. The only thing I noticed was it was too salty. I read the postings before cooking so I did cut back on some of the liquid so it wasnt watery. Other than that it was great!! Thanks!
The flavor was good, but too much liquid and my DH preferred the 'stovetop' variety so that the chicken and sausage is 'browned' a bit rather than steamed. Did use Rotel tomatoes w/gr chilies
Excellent tasting recipe. The only things I changed were for personal prference, I omit the salt and the sausage. I also found the recipe a little too watery, but the taste was wonderful.
