Crock Pot Jambalaya

Diane Hopson Smith


My new crockpot just became my new best friend!

I gave it a first workout with my Jambalaya and it cooked it to perfection! The aroma that when through the house while this was cooking was mouth watering!

If you love cajun food like we do, I don't think you will be disappointed in this spicy, full of flavor dish.

1 tsp
oregano, dried
2 tsp

1 tsp

cooked rice


1Layer chicken pieces and sausage slices in bottom of crock pot.

Peel and devein shrimp; keep refrigerated until ready to add.
2Combine onion, pepper, celery and garlic; layer on top of meat.

NOTE: I had every intention of adding celery but I forgot. This Jambalaya was still outstanding.
3Combine tomatoes, broth, wine and seasoning; pour over onion/pepper mixture.
4Set crock pot on HIGH. Cook for 4 hours. Add shrimp the last 20 minutes of cooking time. (You can cook on LOW for 8 hours)

NOTE: taste test before adding shrimp; add additional seasoning if desired at this point. I did not find it necessary to add anything extra, flavor was perfect for me.
5To serve, place a scoop of hot rice in a bowl and spoon jambalaya over rice.
