Thirty Days of Lor-cipies

A Christmas Gift to You

from Loree Lough

Yes, it's true: I'm always on a deadline. So to ensure that my family gets well-balanced, nutritious meals, I rely heavily on my trusty slow cooker. And throughout the month of December—one of the busiest months of the year—I'm sharing my family's favorite recipes with you.

If you try one this one, send me a picture of it and I'll add your name to the hat, and you might win a basket of New Year's fun! Merry Christmas!


December 9: Loree's Tomato-Chicken Gumbo


6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cubed
½ pound Italian or Polish sausage links, sliced
3 cups water
1-14 ounce can chicken broth
½ cup long grain white rice, uncooked
1-26 ounce can or jar of "traditional" spaghetti sauce
1 can corn, drained
1 green pepper, diced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray a large, shallow baking pan with Pam.
Place chicken and sausage in pan and bake 15-20 minutes (until chicken is no longer pink).
In a 12-quart pot, bring water and broth to a full boil.
Add chicken, sausage, and rice.
Cover and cook over medium heat 15-20 minutes.
Stir in spaghetti sauce, corn and pepper and bring to a boil.
Cook 10 minutes (or until rice is tender).
And remember...try it and post a photo of it on my Facebook author's wall, you could win this basket (a $100 value)!
