Chicken is fast becoming our staple these days as they are easy and it is hard to mess up with chicken. I found this slow cooker Jambalaya recipe at Allrecipe and could not resist sending it to the BF with some modifications.
The BF put the chicken in the slow cooker, took a picture and posted it on FB.. inviting friends for dinner " first come first served". One couple took up the "dinner offer". This is really a great easy recipe for week days dinner. We put everything in the crock pot, went for our evening run and came back at 9pm. Our couple friend arrived with a bottle of wine and dinner was served . No hassle and no mess :)
Both the BF and I agreed that this recipe is a keeper. We made it with just chicken and agreed that we would add sausages the next time we made it
