"My family loves a lot of flavor and spice in our food and jambalaya delivers. This is my version of a New Orleans jambalaya that's got a nice kick to it but not overly hot for those who's tongues can't handle it." — JenC

margarine or butter
chopped green pepper
1 (14.5 ounce) can
1 1/2 cups
long grain white rice
diced cooked chicken breast
cooked crumbled Italian sausage
peeled cooked shrimp
This was a winner at our house. Everybody went back for seconds and from the first bite my husband asked if I made a lot of this. He was happy when I told him I doubled the recipe.
I simplified the recipe by boiling the chicken in water with celery salt, garlic powder and pepper. Then I cut the chicken in bite size pieces and used the liquid for the broth.
I cooked 16 oz of sausage with the celery, green pepper and onion. After the sausage was done I just added all the ingredients in the skillet and cooked till the rice was done.
Simple, easy and delicious. Thanks Jan for a easy great recipe.
uh, yeah Jambalaya for those who don't know real Jamabalaya. Anyway will sticking too my mother-in-law recipe
This recipe was outstanding. I have never liked shrimp but this recipe makes it taste sooo good. Even my 4 year old twins liked it. My husband ate all the left overs the next day and said that I could make this recipe anytime. What a fabulous feast! I used hot italian sausage to add a little extra kick. yum.
This was delicious! I cooked a couple of small chicken breasts in water with a bouillon cube to make the chicken broth, set the chicken aside to cool, (added the broth to the veggies and rice), then cooked the sausage in the chicken pan and set it aside to add at the end with the chicken and shrimp. Everyone enjoyed it and proclaimed it A Keeper.
I wasn't blown out of the water by this recipe, but it was pretty tasty and very quick since I had both chicken and sausage already cooked. My husband loved it, and said it was even better the second day. (He ate all of the leftovers, so I didn't get a chance to try it the day after!)
I left out the shrimp but otherwise kept to the recipe. Delish!!!! Rice is W O N D E R F U L !
This was wonderful. I only had chicken for the meat and did not have celery or green pepper but still turned out great. I will definitely make this again and try will the other meat/veg.
made this for last nights dinner and i was very impressed it was easy to make and everyone enjoyed it. thanks
