"The food was excellent,very easy to prepare,had to watch the fluid level so that it wouldn't dry out during cooking. I added "Tony Chachere's original creole seasoning" after it was cooked. Next time in preparing this wonderful meal I'm going to add smoked ham, smoked sausage, crab meat, oysters. As close to cajun as you can get."
"This recipe was great! Easy to make and satisfied my husband who is a picky eater....will make this one again. This recipe also meets my nutritional needs, fits in with the Weight Watchers point system."
"This is a super crockpot version of Jambalya. I followed the recipe exactly, and the seasonings were perfect and not too spicy. The consistency of the Jambalya was excellent and the leftovers tasted great the next day. This will be added to my favorite weekend crockpot recipes. "
"Ooh, I was worried about this one. My wife and in-laws are from south east Texas very close to Louisiana and I made this for them, and they all cleaned their plates and raved about the taste. Things I did different: I used 1 green pepper (didn't measure volume), used a very big onion, 3 stalks of celery, 3 boneless chicken breasts, 1 package smoked turkey sausage, and about as much shrimp volume as chicken. I think we also added 4 1/2 cups rice, but next time we'll add more. I don't know what happened with the other reviewers' liquid volume but we had plenty. The flavor was very mild, even for me and I'm a wimp. That's the beauty of this recipe. You can make it for anyone and if people want to burn their own mouths off they can add their own spice. This was super and it's going in our rotation right away. *Very* easy also, just chop up stuff and throw it in. My kind of meal. Thanks for the keeper!"
"YUMMMMM! This is a great crockpot recipe. I did everything as per the recipe, except I added some cooked smoked sausage at the end. The whole house smelled wonderful when I came home from work and I couldn't wait to dig in. This recipe is not overly spicy, so it works for just about anyone. But for those that like it hot, they may want to sprinkle in some Cajun seasoning at the end."
"I made this for company last night. I added a pound of andouille sausage, a few sprinkles of emerils bayou blast, and worcestershire sauce. Everyone loved it, even my picky daughter"
"I tryed this and it was great, I will use it over and over'"
"We really enjoyed this recipe. I studied the other reviews & made the following adjustments since we like things a little spicier:
- 2 chicken breasts, 3 turkey sausages & 1 lb of shrimp.
- Used 1 can of diced spicy tomatoes seasoned w/jalepeno & a small can of garlic roasted tomato paste
- Left out the salt, but added ~1 T. of Cajun Seasoning & tripled the Tabasco sauce
- Added 1 1/2 cups uncooked rice w/4 hours into it. Also added another cup of chicken broth, but probably could've used more. You may want to add 1 1/2 - 2 cups of add'l broth if you decided to cook the rice in w/the rest of the jambalaya.
- Only cooked for about 6 hours, but was perfecto."
"Great recipe! Only thing I did different is to substitute thyme for the basil. I added Andouille sausage, also. Thanks, Carole"
"I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I was putting all of the ingredients into my crockpot, but it turns out that this dish had wonderful flavor. I read some reviews that said they had to watch the liquid to make sure it didn't dry out, so I added extra liquids, since I was going to be gone all day and wouldn't have a chance to watch it for dryness. Turns out that it was a little too liquidy, so it may just be different varieties of crockpots. We loved it anyway. We'll definately make this one again! -lubie-"
"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."
"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. "
"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. "
"Very easy to make, real life saver on busy days and the taste is out of this world. ( of course it came frome Inez )"
"Flavors are perfect! Didn't change a thing, this is very good! Thanks for sharing!"
"This was excellent! I made it exactly like as the recipe reads on down to washing my hands :-) This recipe has gained a perminent spot in my Recipezaar cookbook to be made often. Thanks for the easy and delicious recipe!"
"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!"
