Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken and Sausage is like a cheat version for gumbo! It's a great easy dinner full of bold flavors that your family will love!
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray.
Add the sausage, spreading the slices into a single layer across the pan (you may need to do this in 2 batches).
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, until the bottoms are golden brown. Flip each to the other side to brown.
Place (raw) chicken breasts in slow cooker, and then add the browned sausages.
Deglaze your hot saucepan with the chicken broth to remove all of those yummy browned bits.
Pour broth into the crockpot. Add chopped onion, green onion, bell pepper, celery, parsley, garlic, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and cajun seasoning. Stir to combine.
Cook on LOW for 6 hours or HIGH for 3 hours.
Remove chicken to a plate and shred it into small pieces. At this point you can taste the broth and season with salt or additional cajun seasoning, if needed.
Return chicken to the pot and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes.
