Here’s a unique spin on something similar to a Jambalaya. It’s basically an all-in-one-pot rice meal, with meat and vegetable sides just like most other recipes come with. I created this recipe thinking of nothing but a smoky flavor in the end hence my choice of ingredients – bacon, cajun spice, and bell peppers. You could certainly reach for different components if you’re thinking of a totally different flavor profile.
Get all the ingredients ready. Again, the choice of cuts would totally depend on the cooking time you’ll need if you want everything to cook at the same time. You can, of course, adjust by getting some ingredients cooking ahead of the others, but for me, that takes some convenience out of a one-pot preparation which I like to leave to cook on its own while I do something else.
It’s my first time working with corn rice so I had no idea how long it’ll cook in the crockpot. However, I’ve learned, that white rice cooks in about an hour so I’m guessing corn rice won’t get too far from that.
Given only that much time, I knew I can’t work with ingredients that take longer to cook. Vegetables would generally be fine but the chicken definitely had to be boneless and cut into smaller pieces.
