As a college girl on the go, I’m always looking for an easy, yummy dinner fix. I typically don’t eat dinner until at least 10pm, and by then, I do not feel like cooking! But hello, eating out every night is expensive, not to mention gross! That’s why I developed a love for my Crockpot!
Whether you’re just planning dinner for yourself or a big group, a Crockpot can go a long way. Try out this easy recipe for yummy Southern jambalaya!
What you’ll need:
1 pound uncooked chicken, cut into cubes
1 pound sausage
1 28oz can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons parsley
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 boxes Rice a Roni fried rice.
All you have to do is throw everything except the rice into your slow cooker, and let it cook on low for 8 hours. Mix up the rice, then mix everything together when it’s all done cooking.
This a great recipe to feed a crowd because it makes a lot. If you’re just cooking for yourself, or yourself and your roomie, there’s enough for the both of you and some left over. This recipe is so easy to reheat in a microwave, too!
