We have been working on a campground in Maine since April and are currently smack in the middle of the busiest time of the year here.  What does that mean for us?  Well it means long hours.  This week, I pulled out the crock pot and using a great coupon for Swanson’s chicken broth, I created a super easy recipe for Crockpot Jambalaya!  The crock pot is apparently my new go-to kitchen utensil.

Our current hours are noon until 8:00 PM.  So it would be great if I could get just a bit more organized so that we don’t end up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every evening.

Not that the dogs mind that…

So here is a quick recipe that took just minutes to put together.  Yummy Crock Pot Jambalaya!

2 stalks celery (chopped)
2 cups tomato sauce
1-1/2 cup Swanson Chicken Broth

Do the same with the sausage.  Place the chicken and sausage into the bottom of the crock pot.  Add the vegetables on top.

Now place the crock pot on Low Setting and go to work!  (Cook on low for at least five hours).

Ralph volunteered to keep an eye on it for me.

When we finally got home, the RV smelled wonderful!  Now for the finishing touches!  You can turn off the crock pot at this point and add in the pre-cooked shrimp.  The shrimp will heat up while you cook up some rice to go along with it.

I used boil in the bag brown rice which only takes about 10 minutes to make.  And dinner is served!

Delicious!  Cooking all day in a crock pot helps the spices to infuse into the meat and vegetables.  A tasty meal with a touch of spice!  So much better than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!  Now if I could only be this organized every day!

    My husband loves Jambalaya, but I’ve never thought to make it in the crock pot – so smart! [client]

    I read this recipe this morning and immediately made it! It was soooo very good! I used raw shrimp, threw it in crockpot. Then I made regular brown rice. The shrimp cooked while the rice cooked. I garnished it all with some chopped green onions. Thank you for this recipe. I’ll be making it again. Think I’ll add some saffron next time.

      Hi Anna!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! It sounds like your version was just as delicious! I love your idea of adding chopped green onions!

    On low for 8 hours? You didn’t say! Thanks

    • Susan Myers July 29, 2015, 10:19 pm

      Five to eight hours is fine. We work eight and it ended up great!

  • Lynda July 28, 2015, 10:40 am

    That looks really yummy! I may have to give this a try. I also love the crockpot!
