Jerk Chicken Sausage Stir Fry

Since I couldn't spend Mother's Day with either Mom or Granny, I decided to cook up some of Mom's recipes instead and plant new flowers that are also found in Granny's garden. Now my place has a little bit of our farm in my flower pots. Of course, it's not actually the same, but it's close. There aren't any cows on the other side of the fence from the flower beds like at home, but I can pretend, right?

"You cook the same way your mother does!" Granny exclaimed when I was telling her what I was cooking on Sunday. Well, I can't argue too much. I've been trying to use up a lot of stuff in my fridge and freezer so I decided to throw it into a stir fry like mom does. However, instead of using a frying pan, I decided to put a new spin on it and throw it into the Crock Pot. So, while I went on a massive cleaning/organizing spree lots of delicious food could cook.

I wasn't sure how it would turn out. After all, I did just throw a bunch of stuff into the Crock Pot and didn't measure any of it. It turned out great, though.

Jerk Chicken Sausage Stir Fry (in the Crock Pot)

  • 2 Onions
  • 2 Bell Peppers (I used yellow and orange, but you can use whatever color you like best)
  • Sliced Carrots
  • 2 Packages chicken sausage (I used one package of smoked chicken sausage and the other was jalapeno/cheddar chicken sausage)
  • Marinade (I used jerk marinade since that's what I had)
  • Jasmine rice
  • Elbow noodles
  • 1 Cup Water
Cooking Directions
  1. Add onions, bell peppers, carrots, chicken sausage, marinade and water to the Crock Pot and cook on high for 4 hours.
  2. About an hour before it's done, add the rice and noodles. You can add just rice or just noodles, but I had a little of both to use up so I added them both.
  3. Stir occasionally.
  4. Enjoy!
