    Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalaya Recipe

    The goal of a slow cooker meal is to save time, which is why I don’t understand a lot of these recipes that require 30 minutes of prep work. Brown the meat, chop the veggies, reduce the broth. I need recipes that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, like Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalaya.

    Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalaya does have a little bit of chopping, but I timed myself and was able to get all the chopping done and everything into the crock pot in just 10 minutes, which is my benchmark for a good slow cooker recipe.

    While the ingredient list looks a little long, have no fear. Most are just dry herbs and go by fast. I would bet you that you already have most of these ingredients in your pantry right now!

    I really like veggies and I try to hide them in all sorts of places. One of which is kale. I know this superfood gets a bad rap and I get it. It is kind cardboard-y (yes, I made that word up) and virtually has no flavor, but add it to a dish like Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalaya or Slow Cooker Ragu.

    Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalaya Recipe takes only 10 minutes for everything to get in the pot and you have one easy dinner four hours later!

    Okra is another under used vegetable. Popular in the south, okra can get slimy with a weird texture when overcooked, but adding it precut, chopped and frozen

    Save even more time by putting all of the ingredients into the slow cooker pot the night before and then put into the fridge.  Just pop the pot into the heating element in the morning and be on your way!

    This Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalaya recipe took me a few tries before I got to a version that I really, really liked.  I used chicken sausage, but turkey or pork sausage can be substituted.
