Not bad for my first try at Jambalya! However, I couldn't follow the recipe exactly because I was not able to find andouille so I substituted smoked beef sausage. I also did not have ham around when I prepared this dish. I did make the creole seasoning using the recipe for the seasoning. The chicken stock from cooking the chicken pieces did not produce 7 cups for me... only about 3 cups so I had to add 2 cans of chicken broth to make up the extra 4 cups. I think the recipe was good but not great! It seemed to have lacked that special punch in taste. Kind of mild as another reviewer noted. It was still a nice meal but just not exciting. I think a little tweaking in the seasonings may help.
Also preparation time is pretty lengthy but it does produce a lot. Definitely a meal for a large family or crowd. One pan will probably not hold all of it unless your pan is super large.
