It’s Mardi Gras time!  Chicken Legs and I aren’t big Mari Gras people.  I’ve only been to Mardi Gras once.  I went with a bunch of sorority sisters when I was in college.  We all piled in my Honda Prelude and took a road trip to New Orleans.   We stayed in the French Quarter so we were close to the action.  I saw things on Bourbon Street that I’ve never seen before or since.  It is truly amazing what people will do for some cheap plastic beads.   It was definitely an experience to remember – once was enough for me!
Our current Mardi Gras celebration is much more tame.  We just like to make some jambalaya.  I thought about making my favorite Creamy Jambalaya Pasta, but then I found a slow cooker jambalaya recipe.  It sounded easy so I gave it a try.  It turned out to be the best jambalaya ever!  We both absolutely loved it. 
This was SO easy to make.  I mixed everything up in the crockpot insert the night before and threw it in the fridge.  I put the insert in the crockpot before I left for work and dinner was ready when I got home.  The only thing I had to make was our favorite Cheesy Biscuits

  1. This recipe looks delicious! I am going to try it for tonight but wondered if you use raw celery or dried celery flakes. Celery isn't mentioned in the list of ingredients, but you do list it below when mixing everything together. And what amount depending on if it is raw or dried?
    Thanks so much!

  2. Reba – the chicken is put in the slow cooker raw. If you do shrimp – put it in about 5-10 minutes before you want to serve it. Shrimp cooks up quick!
