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?
