This recipe was easy to make, it's always nice to come home to a cooked meal! The consistency of this jambalaya was perfect, but the recipe was lacking flavor. It could have been richer and spicier for my taste.

I chopped the vegetables the night before, and they smelled so good when I was setting up the crock the next morning. DD and I loved this, DH was less enthusiastic, I think because I used chicken breasts, and my crockpot is too powerful. Even though I used a timer to cut down on the time it cooked, the chicken was a bit dry. I will definitely make this again but using chicken thighs instead. Maybe I'll through in a bit of ham if I have it.

We enjoyed this dish. I used smoked turkey sausage instead of shrimp and my husband added a lot of hot sauce to his, but that's not unusual! My kids really liked this. I will make this again.

The house smelled wonderful while this was cooking. Like others, I added some sausage to the recipe. The flavor was even better the second day. MizzNezz has another 5 star winner.

This recipe is awesome. I used 3 chicken breasts, a can of diced tomatoes instead of whole, added some Creole seasoning, added smoked sausage, some extra broth for extra rice, etc. And it turned out amazing. I even gave the recipe to friends and they all loved it too. If you like this kind of dish, this recipe is very good and easy to tweak to your liking. I added some cayenne and extra Tabasco for heat, too, but it is just as good without the extra. Thanks for posting such an EASY, EASY, EASY and GREAT recipe.

One reason I seldom make jambalaya in the summer is because it heats up the kitchen so with the simmering on the stove. I LOVE this crockpot recipe. I did like some others and added 1 lb. browned andouille sausage. The seasonings were just right for me but it would be easy to add more pow if you wanted to. Thanks MizzNezz, this one is a goody.

This is an excellent recipe that made my house smell so good all day! The only changes I made were to add some sliced smoked turkey sausage and increased the rice by about 1 cup. Great Jambalaya crock pot recipe that I'll be using again and again! Thanks MizzNezz!
