  • Prep

  1. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Halve sausage lengthwise and cut into ½-inch-thick slices. In a 3- ½- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine chicken, sausage, sweet pepper, celery and onion. Stir in undrained diced tomatoes, undrained chopped tomatoes and green chile peppers, tapioca, basil and cayenne pepper.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in shrimp and okra. Cover and cook about 30 minutes more or until shrimp are opaque. Serve with hot cooked brown rice.
  • Tips 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.
