I just found this recipe so haven't tried it yet but will be soon! Anything I can cook while I'm at work is always a plus!

Slow Cooker Jambalaya

1 pound skinless, bonelesschicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
1 pound andouille sausage, sliced
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
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pound frozen cooked shrimp without tails
Cooked rice

Directions
1 In a slow cooker, mix the chicken, sausage, tomatoes
with juice, onion, green bell pepper, celery, and broth.
Season with oregano, parsley, Cajun seasoning, cayenne
pepper, and thyme.

2 Cover, and cook 7 to 8 hours on Low, or 3 to 4 hours on
High. Stir in the shrimp during the last 30 minutes of cook time.

3 Serve the slow cooker mixture over the cooked rice.

I'll hunt up one of my recipes when I get a chance. My problem at the moment is that I'm hungry for jambalaya, but I'd need to buy about 8 spices that I'm out of- kind of a pita. Paul Prudhomme's "Season Magic" mixes work very well as a standalone seasoning for many Cajun foods, but I finished off my can and it's hard to find where I live.

There's not a spec of snow on the ground here, and up til today it was in the 50's! Even so, late winter is always the time I get hungry for spicy & cajun foods.

I love jambalya but don't make it very often. I won a jambalya contest a couple of years ago that the radio station I listen to did. I'll have to find the recipe & post it. This may be a good excuse for me to make some this weekend! :D

A couple of t-shirts, a grill brush, a cooler-seat thingy(it's hard to describe but it"s like a large insulated bag that folds out to sit on), & 4 tickets to see Aeros(it's a "gymanstics" troop that does things like Cirqu De Sole...I knoe I spelled that wrong :oops: sorry). I just did it on a dare from my hubby & a couple of friends so I was rather shocked when a guy from the radio station called & said I had won & they wanted me to bring a batch of the jambalya to the station & be on air with them. They got 250 recipe entries & thought mine looked the best. That was one dare I was glad I took!

I thought so too, hubby & my parents were very proud of me! I never win anything so you can imagine my shock when I won this! Oh, I almost forgot, I also got a $50 gift certificate to one of the grocery stores here.
