I love how this recipe turned out! This Crockpot Creole Chicken is literally loaded with chicken. Instead of the usual pork sausage, I decided to cut down on the fat a bit by using Al Fresco chicken sausage. It comes in tons of different varieties so you can get the perfect flavor you love, (This isn’t a sponsored post, I just really love their chicken sausage). If you want a more authentically Creole flavor, try some andouille sausage. This is a great meal to make to pack for the week as lunch, this reheats very well so it won’t feel like leftovers when you enjoy it again! This Crockpot Creole Chicken is your new go-to easy meal.
