Crockpot Jambalaya

Since I eat lunch at my desk everyday and lack of dining options in the area...I am always trying to think of things that I can bring to work that don't include lean cuisines, ham sandwiches or cup o' noodles...We are in full swing vegetable mode and I brought way more than I needed home the other day. I decided to test out my new crock pot, so I threw together some jambalaya and let it cook overnight...I woke up four or five times last night because it smelled SO GOOD! I'm not sure if it is a true jambalaya but it sure tastes good to me.

Crock pot Jambalaya
1 package boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1" cubes
1 lb andouille sausage
3 cubanelle peppers, diced
4 round tomatoes, diced
1 whole onion, sliced
3 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons hot sauce, I use Louisiana
3 bay leaves
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
salt/pepper, to taste
3/4 cup white rice, uncooked
Place all ingredients, except rice, in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Add the rice and cook an additional hour or until the broth has absorbed into the rice. You want it to be sticky.
Sorry for the lack of pictures...I was throwing this together at 9:30 last night and wasn't feelin' it!

We are a pretty tight clan here at SMP so I brought it to the office to must have been good because when I went to get some, it was almost gone!

I hope you guys enjoy!
