I kept things pretty traditional with shrimp, chicken, classic cajun seasonings and the rich, savory Eckrich Smoked Sausage. Eckrich Smoked Sausage is one of my favorite ingredients to use when I really want to take the flavor up a notch! It’s naturally hardwood smoked and crafted with the perfect combination of spices. Your family and friends will love it just as much as mine did!

This flavorful recipe is super easy to make, and full of bold Cajun flavors that everyone will love!

Ingredients
  • 1 (14 oz.) package Eckrich Smoked Sausage
  • 1/2 lb. (about 2.5 cups) shredded chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 1 lb. uncooked shrimp, peeled and de-veined
Instructions
  1. Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Slice sausage into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  2. Add the sausage along with all other ingredients, (except for shrimp), to slow cooker. Stir to combine.

  3. Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high. Check to see if rice is cooked and tender. 

  4. In the last 20 minutes of cooking and once rice is tender or seems close to being cooked completely, remove tails from shrimp and place into crockpot. Cover and cook for another 15-20 minutes, or until shrimp turns pink and is cooked through. Stir everything together, sprinkle with chopped parsley if desired, and enjoy!
