Tiana’s Slow Cooker Jambalaya

 In Recipes

In the Princess and the Frog, Tiana rules the kitchen and is always cooking or baking up something delicious. To bring some of that New Orleans flavor up north, I decided to whip up a slow cooker jambalaya.

This meal is super simple to put together and it perfect for busy work days. Plus, it makes great leftovers.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast – cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 pound andouille sausage, sliced
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons creole seasoning
  • 2 cups uncooked rice

4. Cook the rice separately and stir it in during the last 30 minutes of cook time.

If you still want a flavorful meal, but don’t do well with spice, just adjust the spice amounts in your creole seasoning. I’d recommend decreasing the white and cayenne pepper.
