CrockTober Fest- Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a festive soup. The spice compliments the variety of different veggies and meats. A bright Coleslaw or steamed Collard Greens go great alongside a bowl of Jambalaya. 


  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 pound turkey sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cups of chopped onions
  • 1 cup of chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup of chopped red pepper
  • 1 cup of chopped celery
  • 1 can 28- ounce diced tomatoes, undrained (I used the garlic flavored)
  • 1 cup of chicken broth 
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 3-4 chicken breasts cut into strips (about 1.5-2 pounds)
  • 2 cups brown rice or wild rice

*Optional: Add a few drops of tabasco before you add chicken and stir.

Layer your crockpot with the sausage on the bottom. Next add the onions, celery, peppers, tomatoes, broth and bay leaves and sprinkle with about half your seasonings and stir. Top that with your chicken and pour the rest of the seasoning mixture on top. Cover and cook for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. (Until chicken is cooked through.)

Enjoy Good Food,
