Excellent recipe

Crockpot Creole Jambalaya

3pts for 7 servings (about 1 1/2 cups to serve over rice or whole wheat pasta)

4 pts for 5 HUGE servings (served like a stew)

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes (12 ounces)

1/2 pound cajun turkey sausage links (aidells or trader joes)

1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 (15 ounce) can crushed tomatoes or sauce

1 medium onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

2 stalks celery, chopped

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

3 teaspoons dried oregano

3 teaspoons Cajun or Creole seasoning

1 teaspoon hot sauce (more for spicy)

2 bay leaves

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 pound frozen peeled and cooked shrimp, thawed

In a slow cooker, combine chicken, sausage, tomatoes, onion, green pepper, celery, and chicken broth. Stir in oregano, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, bay leaves, and thyme.

Cover, and cook on LOW for 7 hours or on HIGH for 3 hours. Stir in the thawed shrimp and cover and cook until the shrimp is heated through, about 10-15 minutes.

Discard bay leaves and spoon mixture over cooked brown rice.

This was super yummy! I recommend cutting down on the cajun seasoning if you don't want it too spicey. I enjoy spicey food so I didn't mind it.
