I made this recipe and really loved how it turned out. I actually call it "Cajun Stew" The only thing I changed was I sauteed some shimp in butter and sprinkled with garlic, so whoever wanted it could add it on top of the stew. It was very delicious!

I made this exactly as written AND added about a 1/2 cup white wine. I cooked it on high for 4 hours and the 3 cups of vegetables cooked up perfectly. I then added fresh shrimp and they cooked quickly and beautifully. I gave it four stars b/c it was too spicy for me, even though I served it over rice. My husband, however, thought it was perfect. It's got very good flavor. Love the chicken and sausage in it. Yummy!

I love slow cooker recipes for their ease of prep and allow me to do other things and still have a hot meal on the table. I had high expectations for this recipe but it didnt blow my mind. It was tasty but it def needed some tweaks. - i couldnt fit the shrimp, so i omitted it. Next time, i will use my 5 qt. - 6 hrs was not long enough. The Celery was still crunchy.I let mine cook on low for 8 hrs. Much better - The sauce is very thin. Almost like soup. Next time I will add tomato paste to thicken up the sauce. - Not spicy enough.

Mine turned out watery and the flavors weren't that concentrated even after 6 hours in the slow cooker. Perhaps eliminating the cup of water next time?

Awesome. But I'd cook it on high for 6 hrs. Celery was a little crunchy. I also halved the Cajon seasoning (my kids aren't too keen on anything too spicy). After that it probably would've been ok for me but still to spicy for my kids so I added a cup of chicken broth and then it was fine. Also if you want it thicker, after its done I'd put it on the stovetop with a little cornstarch and water to thicken it a little. It was fine for us though as it was.
