A Cajun Dish

JudyL challenged bloggers to make a cajun recipe then blog about it. Inspired by Lori, I search online and found this Cajun site with lots of recipes.

I made one of the jambalayas.

Sausage, Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya

1 chopped onion
1 chopped green bell pepper
1 chopped celery stalk
3-4 boneless chicken breast chopped
1/2 pound Andouille sausage
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup chicken broth
2 tsp dried oregano
2 bay leaves
2 tsp Creole or Cajun seasonings
1/2 tsp dried thyme
hot sauce (Tabasco) liberally applied

pre-cooked or frozen pre-cooked shrimp

1. Place ingredients into slow cooker in order given
2. Set on low for 7 hours or high for 3 hours
3. Add pre-cooked or frozen pre-cooked shrimp for 5-10 minutes

I used Lousiana Cajun Seasoning and served the jambalaya with brown rice. We also had silver dollar dinner rolls. I made some vanilla pudding for dessert. It was a tad spicy for DS and GF, DD slept through dinner then ate a bowl of Golden Graham cereal. She wasn't even interested in trying it! DH and I each had two helpings but I think DH thought if he ate more tonight then I wouldn't have enough to serve tomorrow as leftovers! I'm glad I tried this recipe but I better stick with milder recipes for our Midwestern palates! :)
