Chicken, Shrimp & Sausage Jambalaya

I have been craving Jambalaya! On these cold days, there is nothing better to warm you up! It's spicy and hearty and absolutely deliciously satisfying! I cooked it in my crock pot, too. Which allowed me to take my time cooking it throughout the afternoon. I just added the delicate ingredients, that I didn't want to overcook, close to serving time. Stay warm and enjoy!

2 boneless chicken breasts
2 sausages (any variety)
1 lb. raw, peeled shrimp
1 can (15 oz.) diced tomatoes
4 C chicken broth
2 tsp. olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 C spinach
2 C cauliflower rice
1+ T Cajun seasoning (I made my own)... combine following spices:
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika

In a large skillet, saute onions, garlic and bell pepper in olive oil. Add to crock pot. Brown chicken breasts on both sides in skillet, cut into bite sized pieces and add to crock pot. Cook sausage, slice and add to crock pot. Now add chicken broth, tomatoes, and cajun seasoning to crock pot. Cook on high for about 1 hour. Turn crock pot to low. Lastly, about 30 minutes before serving, saute shrimp. Add cooked shrimp, spinach and cauliflower rice to crock pot. Cook for about 15 more minutes! This recipe is sure to help you stay warm this winter! Cozy up and enjoy! :-)

Hi Matt! It's easy to make. Just shred 1 head cauliflower in a food processor (easiest method) or with a grater. It's a great rice substitute and holds its texture really well! Thanks!
