Anti-Seafood Jambalaya

I've always loved the flavors of jambalaya but can rarely enjoy it because I hate seafood. SO I created my own New Orleans-style jambalaya without seafood, just sausage and chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a soup pot, heat 1 tbsp oil. Add sausage and chicken and cook until brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mix to a large bowl.
  2. In the same pot, heat remaining oil and add celery, onion, and bell pepper. Cook about 5 minutes.
  3. Add bay leaves, garlic, thyme, salt and cayenne pepper, cook 2 minutes longer.
  4. Return sausage mix to the pot, add uncooked rice, broth, and tomatoes.
  5. Bring mix to a boil and reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer, covered, 20 minutes. Cook until rice is tender about 10 minutes longer and remove bay leaves.
  6. Sprinkle with scallions and serve.

You forgot to mention the scallions in the cooking process...

Being from Louisiana I like jambalaya also.I make it using pork chops and I sometimes add sliced cajun sausage.A very good cold weather dish and filling.Smells up the house in a good way.Thanks for your version,I will try it soon. I tried this and really like it,I halved it tho.I put sausage and shrimp for me in one half and the other I left as is for bf.We both enjoyed it very much.
