Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 6ish hours Serves: 6


  • 4-6 mild sausages
  • ½ pound uncooked shrimp (peeled and de-veined)
  • 1 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 3 bell peppers (one each of green, red, and yellow or orange), diced
  • 1 white or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño (or more if you want spicy), seeds and stems removed*
  • 1½ cups uncooked white rice
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 30-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons store-bought (or our homemade) cajun seasoning (I love epicure!)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cilantro or parsley, for topping


  1. Slice sausage into sections (about ¼ inch thick slices). Remove tails from shrimp if they are still on. Chop chicken into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Add sausage, chicken, bell peppers, jalapeños, chicken broth, tomatoes, minced garlic, cajun seasoning, and salt and pepper to greased slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on low. Stir in rice and cook another 1-2 hours until rice is fully cooked and tender
  3. About 20 minutes before serving, uncover slow cooker, stir in shrimp, re-cover and cook for another 15-20 minutes. Stir contents of slow cooker, sprinkle with chopped cilantro or parsley if desired, and serve hot.

* 1 jalapeño will not make this dish real spicy. If you want more of a kick I recommend adding 3 jalapeños.
