    Slow Cooker Sausage and Chicken Jambalaya
    • 1 package Premio Basil Sausage, sliced
    • 1 package Premio?s Fresh Argentinian Chorizo, sliced
    • 2-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thigh meat, cut into cubes
    • 1-1/2 pounds onions, diced
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon dried basil
    • 1/2 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
    • 1/2 tablespoon white pepper
    • 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
    • 8 cups chicken stock, divided
    • 1-1/4 pounds long-grain rice
    • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley leaves
    In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat sprayed with cooking spray, add the sausage. Cook, moving the sausage from the bottom of the pot. Drain off the rendered fat and transfer to a 6-quart slow cooper. Add the chicken to skillet and brown the chicken lightly on all sides, again moving the meat frequently; add to slow cooker. Add onions, garlic, tasso or prosciutto, thyme, basil and black and white pepper.

    Add 2 cups of the chicken broth to the skillet and bring to a simmer to dissolve the brown bits. Add to slow cooker with remaining chicken broth, cover and cook on High for 5 to 6 hours.

    About an hour before serving, bring a large pot of salted water to a full rolling boil, add rice and cook like pasta until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain well in a fine strainer and add to slow cooker. Add parsley and mix well. Makes 10 to 12 servings

    I do not add salt to this recipe because the sausages are so well seasoned. If desired, put salt shakers on table for people to use if they like.
