Salt-Free Cajun Seasoning
To prepare Cajun seasoning: In a small bowl, stir together onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, paprika, black pepper and cayenne to taste.Advertisement
To prepare jambalaya: Cut chicken into 3/4-inch pieces. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine chicken, celery, onions, tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, Cajun Seasoning, garlic, and salt.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours.
If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in uncooked rice and sweet peppers. Cover and cook about 30 minutes more or until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Before serving, thaw shrimp, if frozen. Stir shrimp and parsley into chicken mixture. If desired, garnish each serving with celery leaves.
Tips: If desired, leave tails on shrimp.
For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
