I found this on allrecipes.com. Grant Michel says, "I have always loved Cajun foods but my wife doesn't like the 'kick.' In response to this, I made my traditional Jambalaya without the heat. Everyone loved this recipe and I hope you will to. Enjoy!"

I made this as posted, except I couldn't bring myself to use kielbasa in cajun jambalaya. So I used the spicier andouille sausage and used a bit more than called for. Loved the heat that the andouille gave this dish. I subbed red bell peppers instead of green, because that was what i had on hand. I'm not sure what this would taste like with kielbasa, but with the andouille sausage its a 5. Thanks for sharing! Made for Market tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Saute chicken and kielbasa until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Season with cayenne, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until onion is tender and translucent. Add rice, then stir in chicken stock and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce.
