I made this for my daughter's French Club celebration of Mardi Gras. She came home and said they all loved it and several people asked for the recipe. I substituted salad shrimp for the ham and used chicken breasts instead of thighs. My family also loved it. Will make again!

A lot of flavor, we enjoyed it! I used chicken breast instead of thighs, cajun Andouille sausage, and turkey kielbasa instead of ham. I used Emeril's Creole Seasoning recipe from The Food Network website. I eliminated the addt.l one-half tsp. cayenne. The sauce was a little on the thin side, maybe because I cooked the rice separately. I enjoyed making the dish and it was very tasty...but unfortunately unhealthy due to the high fat, sodium, potassium content. I probably won't make it again.

Delicious! Wonderful for a very cold winter night. I used chicken breast (because that's what I had on hand) and andouille sausage. I didn't add the ham. I also added a little salt. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a "T". Yum yum!

This was great! I usually use sausage and shrimp in Jambalaya, but the ham was a nice addition. The only change I made was using brown rice instead of white. And the spicyness was perfect!

Delish! I used chicken breasts, turkey sausage and shrimp instead of the 3 meats he listed below. Super good!

super, used Emirl's Essence instead of creole seasoning, flavors couldn't be any better, cooked rice separate, cook longer than calls for to really marry flavors

Absolutely fabulous! Only recommendation for those who don't like things too spicy... cut the sausage in thinner slices. I liked the kick, but some found the sausage a bit much in larger chunks. Am whipping up another batch today. Oh, I also add shrimp which is great!

Awesome!!! Tried it on a group of friends the other night & all the wives went home with the recipe. Love the one-pot cooking & most of the prep work can be done ahead of time. This one is, definitely, a keeper !!!!! (Had some difficulty finding Creole seasoning. After checking Safeway & QFC, I finally found it at Fred Meyer.)
