Birthday Dinner

A year ago one of my brothers was working as a missionary in Texas. He loved everything about his work there; the people, the food, etc.  Today is his birthday and this recipe reminds me of him.  I remember him talking of the Cajun food, so this recipe is for him.

Slow Cooker Chicken Gumbo
adapted from:

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into chunks)
1 (12oz) pkg frozen okra (chopped)
1 pkg Cajun hot links
1 pkg frozen mixed veggies (onions, peppers, celery)
1 t thyme
1/2 t salt
2 bay leaves
1/2 t onion powder
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t mustard powder
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t black pepper
2 cups chicken broth (low sodium)
2 cups tomtato juice (low sodium V-8)

Place all ingredients in the crockpot in the order given. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. Serve hot over rice.
