This recipe has all of the normal vegetables and seasonings of traditional jambalaya, only the meats are different from what you would normally expect. I went to make my normal jambalaya recipe and discovered that the andouille sausage wasn't thawed and I was out of shrimp. I was not happy and was in a rush to get out the door for my son's football practice. So I took what I had on hand, a pound of bulk breakfast sausage and made a fast substitution. The result was tasty and loved by all. It was a quiet dinner...a sure sign of a good meal.
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
1 pound bulk sausage, browned
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried parsley
3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Add all to crock pot and cook on low for 5 hours. Serve over rice. So easy and so good.
-If you have pre-cooked chicken add it to the pot about an hour before it is finished cooking.
