slow cooker jambalaya


So there is kind of a funny story about this jambalaya.. it was the last week of summer before school started and i left instructions and all the ingredients on the counter for when shell got up.. well she followed the directions perfect...cept one.. i even was on the phone with her and i heard her turn the crock pot on but i guess she then immediately turned it off because when pete got home it wasn't cooking and well hadn't been cooked at all .. *sigh* so that was a order pizza in kinda night.. and the ingredients tossed.. so we decided to try it again.. i got all the ingredients prepared before i left for work and turnd the crock pot to low.. when pete got home he turned to hold warm and when i got home and before the gym i checked it.. *whew* ok it was cooked.. i cranked it to high and ran to the gym.. came home made rice and dinner was ready.. now pete and shell said it was really really good.. i on the other hand didn't eat it.. remember i don't like food cooked in a crock pot.. ha.. 


prep time: 15  minutes
cook time:  9-10 hours
servings:     6

ingredients:

1 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 lb. smoked sausage (i used turkey)
1 16 oz. cans of diced tomatoes (i used the kind with celery and seasonings in it)

1 bell pepper, diced
1 cup chicken broth
1 tbls. cajun seasoning, (i always use tony chachere's)
a few dashes of tobasco

in a slow cooker spray your pam, then add chicken, sausage, tomatoes, onion, pepper and chicken broth.  add cajun seasoning and hot sauce.  cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours then turn to high for another 1 or 2.. when done spoon mixture over rice.. may need additional tobasco..
