    Really good. I do cook the rice separate, that way I don't make glue, and you can make it hotter-I do!

    1. 1
      Melt shortening in a large/huge saucepan over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Cook chicken pieces until brown on all sides and cooked about half way through, around 20 minutes or so.
    3. 3
      Remove and add onion, green pepper, celery and garlic.
    4. 4
      Cook slowly stirring now and again until onions are tender.
    5. 5
      Add sausage and cook 10 min more.
    6. 6
      Return chicken and add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT rice and stir together well.
    7. 7
      Cover and simmer for 30 min stirring now and again.
    8. 8
      Remove cover and continue to cook until broth cooks down a bit-you don't want it too thick as the rice will soak up the juice.
    9. 9
      Serve up the rice in bowls and ladle the Jambalaya on top, and offer more cayenne or Tabasco at the table.
    10. 10
      ***I know that cooking the rice on the side and not in the dish will cause some to have a heart attack, but I've found the flavor much better this way, IMHO.

      Very good AND the kids liked it too! I also used chicken breasts, hot sausage & some shrimp at the end. This one is definately a keeper. Thanks.

      Wow, this was sooooo good and I can't wait to make it again! I did make a couple of small changes...substituted diced ham for the chicken (only because I didn't have any chicken) and added shrimp. I'm going to make sure I have chicken the next time I make this. I always cook my rice separately also because DH doesn't eat rice.

      This was a great recipe for any level cook. I am by no means a culinary genius, and making this recipe was a cinch. I found that adding the hot sausages really gave this recipe a kick and complimented the cayenne well (while not being too hot). This is definitely a recipe that we are going to keep!!!
