Jambalaya II Recipe
A whole chicken is stewed with smoked sausage, then combined with bell pepper, rice and tomatoes and flavored with chili powder, pepper sauce, cayenne and Worcestershire in this thick Cajun soup.
Chicken breasts are chopped and simmered with onion, green pepper, tomatoes, garlic powder, onion powder and chili powder and mixed with instant rice for an impressive meal you won't have to slave over.
This wasn't bad, but took some doctoring to get it to where the family really enjoyed it. I added celery with the onions and peppers... instead of 1 can of whole tomatoes, I subbed diced tomatoes with green chiles (Rotel style), and instead of chili powder, I subbed cajun seasoning. Also the instant rice just didn't do it for us, and seemed to suck up all the juices, leaving the jambalaya dry, so the next time I made this, I used regular long grain rice cooked separately, and added it at the end.... after these changes it was much better
Absolutely delicious! I've always loved jambalaya, but never thought it could be so easy to make. Now I make it on a regular basis, my husband and I enjoy it very much. Since neither of us like sausage I use raw deveined shrimp, and toss them in during the rice cooking stage.
This is a winner. It took me about 1 1/2 hours from start to finish. I used chicken breast, Eckridge beef smoked sausage, and added shrimp at the end. I had only tomato sauce rather than paste and it worked out just fine. I also used about a cup and a half of rice and increased the stock accordingly. I don't think you can mess this one up - just stick with the basic recipe and add or delete spices as you like. I added salt and pepper and a few shakes of creole seasoning. I'll be making this again for sure. Thanks for the recipe!
This is absolutely the best!!!! I have made several times & the recipe is always requested by everyone.I do not use a whole chicken, I use a combo of boneless/skinless breast & thighs & use chicken base for the broth. I do add shrimp & use "bahama mama" sausage, I have also substituted barley for the rice. YUM-YUM!!!!!!!!!
This is great. I added some salt and pepper and a lot more hot sauce! Served with "Rory's Most Wonderful Corn Bread" recipe from this site. Both were a hit.
Chicken breast and kielbasa are sauteed with green pepper, onion celery and garlic, then stewed with chicken stock and rice. This version is lightly spiced, in response to those a little more sensitive to pepper.
Easy one-dish recipe. I will make this recipe again. I think this is a recipe you can (and probably should) add your own personal touches too. I made a few modifications to the recipe: added fresh garlic, used canned diced tomatoes (with seasonings), and added a little hot sauce. Next time I will probably make even more modifications even though it had a nice flavor as prepared.
