Easy “Almost” Jambalaya

9 Comments

Thank you all for the kind words.  Everything went as well as can be expected and we are glad to be home again!  Fourteen hours (one way) in a car with 4 adults and 2 dogs is not something I would recommend.

I made this last night and I KNOW it’s not a true jambalaya but it works and tastes delicious.  It’s easy to throw together and it cooks in about 4-5 hours in your crockpot.  Works for me!  It makes loads of jambalaya so I am going to freeze the leftovers for another day.

Easy Jambalaya ~ Crockpot

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef or chicken broth
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
2 medium or 1 large green peppers, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced
3 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons dried basil
1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes (I used tenderloins and cut them in half)
1 pound andouille sausage, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
Hot cooked rice

In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the tomatoes, broth and tomato paste. Stir in the green peppers, onion, celery, garlic and seasonings. Stir in chicken and sausage.

Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is tender. Stir in shrimp. Cover and cook 15-30 minutes longer or until shrimp turn pink. Serve with rice.

Makes 8-10 servings.

  1. I definitely missed you my dear. Hope you and hubby are doing alright. I know those trips aren’t easy for many reasons. Thinking of you.

    The jambalaya looks just perfect, “almost” or not.
