This recipe was amazing! Will definitely make this again. Like others, I will add other meats next time for a classic cajun fare. I used RoTel diced tomatoes instead of whole canned tomatoes, also, for added kick. Yummy!

Wow this was good!! I used 1 T. Chuck Taagarts 'Creole Seasoning' (a homemade version) in place of the basil, parsley and oregano. I also left out the salt and use a sprinkle of Kosher salt after plating instead. Next time for an even spicier version, I might use Allen's brand 'Hoppin' John' with onions, tomatoes and jalepenos in place of the tomatoes. Great recipe!!

It was pretty good. I don't think it takes a whole 8 hours to cook though. I'm not sure how often it will go into rotation but we enjoyed the meal. I did add cajun seasoning and a few dashes more of hot sauce.

This was really good! I wanted to put some andouille sausage in it but our meat counter didn't have any. I half cooked some Jimmy Dean Hot sausage and put that in. I think it would have tasted better with andouille. I didn't use any shrimp. No one else likes it but me. Other than that, I stayed to the recipe, very tasty! I had to freeze some!

Awesome and easy! We found that the chicken was very overcooked...would put about 1/2 way through...added cajun sausage too!

I finally realized after the umpteenth time of trying to cook chicken breasts in a crock pot that it just doesn't work well. It always dries out and has the same funny taste, no matter what other ingredients I use. And I've tried a LOT of different liquid/spices combos.

However, where this recipe is concerned, I substituted turkey sausage for the shimp (DH isn't a huge shrimp fan), and I really loved that part of it. I would make this again, and next time substitute the sausage for the CHICKEN, and keep the shrimp. That would be absolutely great. I liked everything else about this, other than the icky dried-out chicken.

This was so easy, and quite tasty. Like others, I added andouille sausage and reduced the quantity of chicken. Only other thing I would change (next time) would be to add more rice. It was slightly soupy. But the flavor was fantastic. Definitely a repeat recipe for us.

wow this was so great. I added smoked turkey sausage, and crab meat, and orka to set it off. This was better than any jambalaya I have ever tasted. So easy to make and easy to throw together...YUM
