Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Slow Cooker JambalayaI was actually scared of my own dinner! I don’t mind a bit of kick but Cayenne pepper and Tabasco was worrying. However, in the end it wasn’t too mind blowing. Sadomasochists may want to add a few more dashes of both!

Serves 6-8
Cooking time: 7-8 hours
Temp: Low

TBSP of oil
500g of skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into bite-size chunks
Salt and pepper
1 onion chopped
225g of Chorizo Sausage, chopped
3 sticks of celery, diced
1 green pepper, diced
400g tin of chopped tomatoes
250 ml of chicken stock
2 dashes of tabasco sauce
2 tsp of dried oregano
2 tsp of dried parsley
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp of dried thyme
200 g peeled king prawns


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until the chicken is sealed. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to slow cooker.
  2. Sauté the onions for about 3 minutes till soft.
  3. Add the sausage, celery and green pepper and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in the stock and tomatoes, add the dried spices and tabasco, stir and bring to a boil. Pour into slow cooker, mix, cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
  5. 30 min before serving add the prawns.

Serve on a bed of rice. If you find it too hot, serve with plain yoghurt.

One thought on “Slow Cooker Jambalaya”

  1. Yum I make Jambalaya quite a bit, have the recipe on my blog and I make my own seasoning for it and mine would possibly be a little too hot. Yours looks lovely.

    I love this idea, as my #scsunday is a meal that originally should have been a stir fry, I am loving these dishes being converted for the slow cooker.
