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 stove top by making a roux either. I often times use this recipe when I have left over 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.
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!
