Chicken Jambalaya

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mama smurf

One of my DH's favorite. I tweaked it a little to suit our tastes. It is really quite easy to put together, yields 2 servings and reheats well. I fix a green salad with it and garlic bread for a complete meal. Found this recipe in the "Cooking for One or Two".

Very good! I quadrupled the recipe because I was sharing with friends and we all really liked this. I had a bit of trouble getting the rice to fully cook so if you make a large batch be sure to add cooking time and possibly more broth. Also, there is cayenne listed in the directions but not on the ingredient list. I wasn't sure how much to use so I kept it safe at 1/2 tsp. All in all, this is a great recipe that I really enjoyed. Thanks for sharing, mama smurf! **Made for Fall PAC 2009**
