Rick's Cajun Jambalaya

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by rickscott

This was the result of a little experimentation. I keep cooked chicken breasts and uncooked shrimp in the freezer so I can get this started in no time.

Yummy! And easier than I thought it would be. Hardest part was finding andouille sausage here in town! Used a mix of red and green bell pepper, doubled the garlic, but cut the cayenne in half, since I wasn't sure how spicy the sausage would be. Turned out great, not too garlicky, not too spicy. Used b/l s/l chicken breasts boiled earlier in the day and large shrimp I had in the freezer. DH took leftovers to work and said he had to watch the crockpot to keep his co-workers from stealing his lunch. :-)
