Saturday recipe....

My secretary just returned today from a week in New Orleans. One of her favorite meals (at my recommendation) was a cajun/creole dish called Jambalaya.

Since the recent purchase of my little red crock pot, I want to share this crock pot recipe for Jambalaya!

1 pound chicken breasts or tenders, boneless, cut in 1-inch cubes
8 to 12 ounces smoked sausage, sliced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 large can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons dried leaf oregano
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound shrimp, cooked
2 cups raw rice, cooked


Combine chicken, sausage, chopped bell pepper, and chopped onion in slow cooker. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, wine, oregano, parsley, Cajun seasoning, and pepper; stir gently. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.

About 30 to 45 minutes before eating, add cooked shrimp and hot cooked rice; heat thoroughly.
Serves 8.

My brother makes a mean Jambalaya. It is so hot that only he will eat it in his family. That was until Kiran came home, know when ever he makes it she gets invited over for dinner.
