This is an easy slow-cooker jambalaya-like dish that my family and friends have enjoyed. I adjust the amount of cajun spice depending on who I am cooking for.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the first 7 ingredients to a 4-quart slow cooker; stir to combine.
  2. Add in the chicken; stir.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours.
  4. Add in rice, shrimp, and green pepper.
  5. Cover and let stand 10-15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
  6. Adjust seasoning to taste.

This is pretty darn good. I used chicken breasts though I think thighs would be good, too. I cooked everything in the crockpot, made my rice separately and then added it at the end with the (cooked) shrimp. Very tasty. I think a bay leaf would be a nice addition to the flavors so will add that next time. I used Tony Chachere's - maybe 2.5 teaspoons - it wasn't too hot. I think I will add tabasco to the individual servings on the plate... maybe. Thanks ratherbeswimmin'!

Loved that this was a crockpot recipe - quick and easy prep. I started with 2.5 tsp of the cajun seasoning and next time will definitely add more. I'll be keeping this in the rotation as a different idea for a crockpot meal. Thanks for posting!!!!!!
