READY IN: 6hrs 30mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

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.

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'!
