Slow Cooker Jambalaya


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes

1 pound smoked turkey sausage, sliced

1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice

3 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes

1 cup chicken broth

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons dried parsley

2 tsp minced garlic

2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

white rice or instant rice (I used 2 packs of Uncle Ben's Ready Rice - Garlic & Butter flavor)


In a slow cooker, mix the chicken, sausage, tomatoes with juice, onion, garlic, celery, and broth. Season with oregano, parsley, Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper, and thyme.  (I do this the night before and put it in the fridge.  I put it in the slow cooker before I leave in the morning.)


Cover, and cook 7 to 8 hours on Low, or 3 to 4 hours on High. Mix in cooked rice cook for about 15 minutes to warm through.
