24ozKroger Cajun Style Chicken Breast with Rib Meatif you don't have this, use plain chicken and then add 3 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning.
12ozAidells Cajun Style Andouillesliced into small crescent-shaped pieces
16ozdried small red beansI use Kroger brand
2cupsdiced sweet onion
1cupdiced bell pepperI use red, green and yellow
4cupsSimple Truth chicken broth
Optional: 2 tablespoons cajun seasoningif you prefer a more seasoned taste, 4 cups basmati rice, butter for rice
Place all items (EXCEPT RICE) in a large crock pot to cook on low for 8 hours. (Yes, pour the dried red beans in without soaking them overnight. They will cook just fine — promise!).
After 8 hours, the chicken will shred easily, and just mix it all up. If you prefer yours a little mushy (I do), then use an immersion blender for a just a couple seconds to blend some of it up. Be careful as it's easy to blend the entire thing — only use it for 2 seconds!).
Cook the basmati rice according to the directions. (Usually takes 15-20 minutes). Feel free to add butter to the rice, once cooked. (if you are pressed for time, fill your freezer with some microwavable rice for just such moments).
Ladle the red beans over the rice and serve!
