Slow Cooker Jambalya
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 pound Andouille sausage (I substituted chorizo because my grocer didn’t have Andouille)
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
1 14oz can tomato sauce
1 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups chicken broth
2 tsps dried oregano
2 tsps creole seasoning
3 cups long grain rice
1 lb shrimp, shells and tails removed
Set slow cooker on high. Dump in everything except the rice and shrimp. Give it a good stir to mix it all together. Close lid and let cook for 2 hours.
After two hours, add rice. Give it another stir. Let cook for an additional thirty minutes and then add shrimp.
Allow to cook for another half of an hour. Garnish with chopped parsley if you like.
