This is a great recipe for one of my favorite dishes. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make. The chicken/sausage combo is really fantastic. I used a very hot sausage, so the family wasn't quite as pleased as I was with the result. But that's my fault, not the recipe's. Next time I'll have to tone it down a bit. Oh well, I get to eat the leftovers tonight. I can't wait. Thanks for posting.

This is the first time I prepare and taste Jambalaya. Since I know this dish will last through several meals, and afraid that the rice would be soggy for sitting too long in liquid, I did not add the rice and water to the mixture but served the dish over cooked rice. I love the newly acquired taste, it truly exceeded my expectation. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

We had this for supper tonight and it was yummy! Very easy to make and filling. The only thing I did differently, was use a red pepper instead of green, and add some celery. Thanks for posting it!
