The vibrant flavours of this recipe went down a treat! We really enjoyed this healthy yet flavourful dish, although I did add a little extra garlic and paprika! We'll definitely make this again!
I never had jambalaya, but I really wanted to try as I've seen the recipe a lot. This worked out great for us. Both kids enjoyed it, of course I left out the hot chili and I just sprinkled in my dish. I had no peas and I used white rice. For me it tasted Mexican and it's a great dish for kids. It's faster than the other rice dishes as it doesn't require to fry the veggies.A keeper for us.Thanks.
Great one pan meal! The kids really loved this one. I added about 2 cups of frozen mixed veggies instead of the peas, corn, and peppers. Added a bit of extra chicken broth as suggested as well. Put some Tony Chachere's Seasoning on at the table, YUM! Thanks so much for a keeper! Made for Rowdies, ZWT5.
