For the sausage I used hot Italian sausage, took it out of the casing and browned it at high heat in a skillet before adding to the crock pot. I drained most of the grease and browned the chicken (dashed some garlic, black pepper on the chicken) in the same skillet. Didn't cook either for long, just browned the edges. At the 5 hour mark I turned the crock pot up to high, added one 12 oz. package of quinoa (instead of rice) and a pound of pre-cooked shrimp cut up into small pieces. Quinoa soaks up most of the liquid in about 45 minutes, at which point I served it up. Went easy on the cayenne but nearly doubled the cajun spices as well. Got great reviews from the crowd!
