Easy Chicken Jambalaya

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 14 oz. kielbasa turkey sausage
  • 2-3 lbs. skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • 2-4 tablespoons butter for cooking day only
  • 2 green bell peppers diced
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 10 oz. cans Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1 container vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup rice or box of Zatarians Jambalaya Rice mix for cooking day only


Dice green peppers and onion and set aside.

Chop celery and set aside.

Cut chicken into cubes; set aside.

Slice sausage into bite size pieces; set aside

In a large bowl mix together: stock, Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies, diced peppers, onions, celery, cayenne, and red pepper flakes.

Divide chicken and sausage into 2 gallon size freezer bags ( be sure to label bags first.) Divide sauce mixture over top chicken and sausage.

Thaw if frozen; cook in crockpot on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours; until chicken is cooked. (Note-don't worry if your chicken isn't all the way thawed. It can also cook from frozen, it might just take a little longer.)

Once chicken is cooked, then cook rice according to package instructions ( I used a box of Zatarians Jambalaya Mix, instead of plain rice.) If using plain rice, add butter to rice and top with a large spoonful of Jambalaya and serve in bowls with your favorite hot sauce.
