Short on time and don’t know what to do for dinner? This simple slow-cooker recipe for chicken and seafood gumbo is the perfect solution to ease your meal worries.
Take 2 pounds Chicken Breast, 1 bag of medium sized shrimp(shell removed, medium sized shrimplets, frozen), I can diced tomatoes, I can Garbonzo Beans, I can Black Beans, I can sweet corn, 10 turns Smoked African Spices (Trader Joes brand), 5 shakes of Red Cayenne pepper, approx. 1 tbs Cilantro.
**The smoked African herbs, cilantro, and Cayenne were added literally with no thought in mind, so you may want to play with this a bit for your personal tastes. This came out with a mild kick, but a palpable kick, so you may want it stronger, or more milder. Just go with it.
Cook in a slow-cooker on HIGH for 4-5 hours, on MEDIUM 5-7
This made 6 individual servings for me-One large chicken breast per container and lots of shrimp and beans and fixings. Depending on what types of ingredients you use, each serving is approx. 430 calories and a whopping 40-50 grams of protein.
