Didn't use a crockot, but it didn't take very long to prepare in my dutch oven (about 45 mins. including prep.). Removed chicken after browning, browned jalepeno sausage and drained fat off then added veggies and sauteed. Added ingredients through rice and simmered 10 mins. Returned chicken to pot, simmered 5 min. and added shrimp simmered another 5-7 min. Didn't need hot sauce (probably b/c of jalapeno sausage); was delicious;-).

My family loved this recipe. I have varying tastes in my house, so I put the hot sauce on the table so everyone could add what they wanted. I doubled the turkey kielbasa. I also found that the rice got mushy leftover, so I served the jambalaya over the rice the next time I made it. Very yummy!!

Very tasty

This was delicious I could use my fresh garden herbs. Of course, tastes even better two days later. I did add okra for more southern taste.

I cooked it for 4 hours because I knew that would be enough with my slow cooker. I kept it on low while cooking the shrimp. Because another reviewer mentioned the rice got mushy, I stirred in it at the end instead of putting it in with the shrimp. I agree with other reviewers that it has too much liquid so next time i would decrease some of the liquid a little.

I have made this a few times for my family and my bookclub. The ladies loved it. I serve the rice separately so people can dish it up however they want. A keeper in my recipe arsenal.

This was good, but way too soupy so I added the dry rice (1/2 cup) directly to the pot rather than cook it first.
