Homemade Shrimp and Sausage Cajun Gumbo Over Rice

Easy Crockpot Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo

I just perfected an Easy Crockpot Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo!!  I didn’t even have to mess up the stovetop by making a roux either.  I often times use this recipe when I have leftover meats I need to turn a meal into.  Most of the time it’s not enough leftovers to create a whole other meal and that’s why this recipe is perfect.   We always make lots of chicken so that’s the most popular leftover in our home.

Here is a video we made to show you how to make this Crockpot Gumbo Recipe.

TIP:  When making this recipe I have learned it’s best to use the crockpot liners for easy clean up.  I wished I had done this from the beginning.  What a world of difference!

I also use this exact Crock-Pot Programmable Cook and Carry Oval Slow Cooker because it holds an amazing amount of food. Perfect for larger families.  It’s a 6 quart crockpot.  Love it!

    Great crockpot conversion recipe! We love gumbo in our family and it’s so much easier in the crockpot! I also subbed Bay leaves for the basil and added a tsp of Gumbo Filé about 5 min before serving.

    Since this recipe didn’t start with the traditional rue I was a bit skeptical. I’m so glad I tried this! My husband and I are big fans…and I’ve recently moved from overseas and don’t have a slow cooker right now. It worked great in my dutch oven, cooked 1.5 hours before adding the shrimp. It was so hot that I just turned off the stove and let the shrimp cook for a bit…perfect! For sausage I used Conecuh (a southern sausage I discovered a few years ago at Walmart). It adds an extra level of flavor.
    As we travel to see family during the holidays this will be the new dish I share this year.
    Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

    I Just used Andouille sausage in this. Omitted the chicken and shrimp, turned out fabulous! I also used Tony Chachere’s seasoning and it truly makes the difference! Great recipe that will stay on my rotation!

      1. I think you mean *bay* leaves, not basil. Bay leaves are sold whole, and are removed before serving and often used in soups & stews. Basil is typically found chopped and is used in more Italian style food, not Creole.

  4. I noticed that in the picture of the ingredients you have salted but didn’t specify any salt or amount in the recipe wondering how much I should add. Also in the ingredients you wrote 3 basil leaves but in the instructions there is no mention of basil, what should I do with those?

  5. I have a 4.5 quarts crock-pot and do you think the gumbo would fit or do I have to cut some ingredients in half? Thanks!

  6. I just made this and added the optional cooked bacon. It is so yummy, my first time making. I am definitely adding to my recipe book. Thank you so much for an easy, quick, fill your tummy up, feel good gumbo. ❤️

    Made this last night and it was a HUGE hit. So easy and we loved it! I was so excited to eat my leftovers for lunch today, I didn’t even make it until noon!
