I kept things pretty traditional with shrimp, chicken, classic cajun seasonings and the rich, savory Eckrich Smoked Sausage.

Your family and friends will love it just as much as mine did!

- 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
- Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Slice sausage into 1/4 inch thick slices.
Add the sausage along with all other ingredients, (except for brown rice and shrimp), to slow cooker. 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.
In the last 20 minutes of cooking, 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!
