This was really easy and really good! The andouille sausage is a little spicy, so if there's someone in your house with a sensitive pallet (like my wife) you can substitute pork or beef kielbasa sausage. That meant more andouille for me! We served it over a pile of fideo noodles, and it was great. 6-1/2 hours on low setting was perfect. The chicken fell apart nicely too. Definitely not a dish I'd serve wine with, but a good lager or even some ales would be tasty.
