Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage Paella

  • Cooking Time:

    7 hours on Low
  • Servings:



3 lbs. bone­less, skin­less chick­en thighs or breast, cut into pieces
1 T. oil
8 oz. cooked, smoked turkey sausage, halved length­wise and sliced
1 large onion, sliced
3 gar­lic cloves, minced
2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. black pep­per
1/8 tsp. saf­fron, or 1/4 tsp. turmer­ic, ground
14.5 oz. reduced sodi­um chick­en broth
1/2 c. water
2 c. toma­toes, chopped
2 yel­low or green pep­pers, cut into thin bite-sized pieces
1 c. frozen peas
1/2 c. green olives, drained
Cooked Span­ish rice (like bom­ba or arbo­rio)

Pael­la is a pop­u­lar dish from Spain that has a rice base and includes ingre­di­ents such as meat, seafood, and/or veg­eta­bles.  Our cousin start­ed play­ing pro­fes­sion­al bas­ket­ball in Spain this year and he has real­ly enjoyed the Span­ish cui­sine — espe­cial­ly pael­la!  So in hon­or of  Nation­al Pael­la Day and our cousin, Scott Wood, here is a recipe from my eBook of 450+ Slow Cook­er RecipesSlow Cook­er Chick­en and Sausage Pael­la!

  1. Option­al first step: Heat oil in a large skil­let over medi­um-high heat and brown the chick­en pieces. (it may take a few batch­es) Place browned chick­en on a paper tow­el to drain the fat.
  2. Put chick­en pieces, turkey sausage and onion in a 4–5 quart slow cook­er.
  3. Sea­son meat and onion with gar­lic, thyme, black pep­per, and saf­fron or turmer­ic.
  4. Com­bine broth and water togeth­er and pour over the mix­ture in the slow cook­er.
  5. Cov­er & Crock on Low for 7  hours
  6. Give your­self enough time to pre­pare rice as direct­ed on the pack­age to have it ready when done, so you can serve the pael­la over hot rice. I like Matiz Pael­la Rice
  7. After the cook­ing time is com­plete, stir in toma­toes, sweet pep­pers, peas, thyme and (option­al) green olives.
  8. Cov­er and keep on Low for 15 more min­utes. Serve over pre­pared rice.

Hap­py Crock­ing!
