This Jambalaya was terrific!! I had some cooked chicken in my kitchen. So I stirred it in with the rice. Other than that, I did exactly what the recipe states. Amazing result! Will make again!

I have now made this dish many times with happy family members every time. My wife liked it best with the polska kelbas while my teenage son liked to substitute the meats with Johnsonville brats crumbled and browned. What I find amazing is the broth which is packed with flavor. It may start off soupy but if you let simmer long enough the rice will thicken it up. I like the broth so much that sometimes I 1.5 or double the chicken broth and spices. I have made several recipes and after this one, I am searching no more, this one is the one.

Really good - followed the recipe exactly, except I used fresh tomatoes out of the garden. Family all had seconds. Served with some okra (for those who liked okra added), and a side of wax + green + kidney beans with bacon and pepper. Will definitely make again.

This is PERFECT! My picky husband has taste tested several jambalaya recipes that I've tried and always found something wrong with them. He is sitting next to me devouring it right now.. This will be on regular rotation in our household! Just a note - I used turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, I didn't have bell peppers, so I substituted a jalapeño (seeded and ribbed), and I think I like it better - adds a little extra kick if you like spice (but not too much that it was overwhelming). Also, I am usually heavy handed on salt, but even I didn't think this one needed any extra. The Tony Chacheri's has plenty of salt by itself. This is a simple, yet delicious recipe!!

The whole family enjoyed this. I used turkey kielbasa. Also omitted the salt and used salt free Tony Chaceres (yes, they have that now!) and it was still plenty salty. Great with cornbread.

This was just terrific!! So flavorful and just spicy enough. I left out the onions, otherwise made just as specified. Mine came out nice and thick, not soupy at all. Thanks for posting this delicious winner! Made for the Best of 2008 event

This was very good! I made exactly as directed except I substituted turkey kielbasa for the beef. We had company over for supper, and this was filling and hearty and everyone loved the flavors. It was not soupy or goupy - it was thick and rich. As suggested, I served with cornbread. I also served with cauliflower and green salad. This wasn't terribly spicy, which I appreciated. Those who like spicier foods may want to add some red pepper flakes or hotter peppers. Thanks for a great recipe! I took a photo while it was still in my pot!
