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.

Love this recipe! We've made it several times. Things I've ended up doing different: -Add chicken after a few hours - we feel it gets to dry when it's in from the beginning. -Use shrimp instead of ham - which we don't add until the last hour or 2 of cooking. -Add 1.5c white rice at the last hour or two - this is scary to do, but if you give it enough time, eventually the rice cooks perfect and absorbs the extra liquid. -No file powder - what is that anyway??

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!

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!
