Healthy Crockpot Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya

A Healthy Crockpot Meal From My Kitchen To Yours

I have been crushing on this recipe lately so I wanted to share. It is one of the recipes in my personal recipe arsenal and has landed a spot on my Top 10 list. It is a one pot meal that is simple and easy to throw together but contains clean, whole-food ingredients. Perfect for all my friends out there who want to eat well but don’t particularly enjoy spending time in the kitchen. 

Serve it with a green vegetable of your choice (steamed broccoli, spinach, or roasted brussels are my favorites these days) and dinner is done!! 

I got the inspiration for this meal here. I have tweaked it and offer a variation at the end to amp up the nutritional profile. I personally am in love with this version!   

Try one, try both, modify according to your taste. I hope you like it as much as I do and that it becomes one of your dinner go-tos as well!!
