"I like to avoid frozen shrimp when I can so I am using dry cured ham instead to this delicious jambalaya! Toss the chicken, sausage, ham, vegetables, and seasonings in the slow cooker and forget about it until dinner time."

This was a fun recipe to try for Fat Tuesday! This makes a lot of jambalaya, for sure. I used the published amounts of chicken and sausage, but halved the ham and added about 6 oz shrimp at the end of cooking. I used the spices exactly as published including the file powder, delicious, I would call this a medium spicy hot finished. You may want to half or omit the cayanne if you don't like spicy, but it was perfect for us. This is a breeze to put together and great for weeknights. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR!
Great recipe for slow cooker! Didn't use file powder, but turned up to high last 30 minutes and added rice to entire mix. Can use instant rice or long grain, but might take longer with long grain. Good for all of our family as we have shrimp haters among us! Boo! Doubled recipe easily and froze half for another night! Thanks!
Excellent, and easy peasy. A little extra cajun seasoning for me and I was a happy camper!!
Delicious! Followed recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing.
so easy to make and flavorful. Followed recipe except used a red bell pepper instead of green and it turned out amazing. very spicy just the way we like it. would recommend cutting back on spice for anyone that can't handle hotness. thanks for sharing will do again!
I followed the recipe to the letter and it was great. I will using this recipe again and again. Thanks for posting it.
Great spice flavor to this dish. Fast, easy, and great for leftovers since I make the whole batch just for my boyfriend! He searched until he found file powder at a local grocer. Served over brown or white rice this recipe is great. Highly recommend.
Very easy and everyone loved it!! Its a win win :) I will definately be making this again !
