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!!!

This was very good!!! I used chicken breasts, hot italian sausage and threw in some shrimp right at the very end. I used red pepper instead of green because that is all I had. Great flavour. I prefer the rice cooked seperatley as well. I will definatley make this again and again. Thanks for another great recipe Diana!

This recipe was great! I've never made Jambalaya before, and this was incredibly easy and tasty. I used boneless chicken breasts, and cut the cayenne by half to suit our taste. Delicious! I think this is a new favourite.

Love this recipe! My son the chef told me the rice should be cooked in with the Jambalaya, I tried it both ways, and i do prefer the rice cooked separately. I also added shrimp to the dish.

excellent! ( I think....)
Never tasted a jambalaya before, but a friend requested it, and as he came up to paint my steps :)
I could refuse could I?
He said he wanted it with sausage, like chorizo, but he had never tasted it before either :)
I decided to try your recipe, befcause I have tried a few, and they have been good.
and so was this one, he raved, he had two serves, and leftovers for lunch. I loved it too, and will be making it again. Thanks Dibs

We loved it! I switched onion for green onion and added tomato paste to make it thicker. I cooked the rice separately and then added it at the end to absorb left over liquid, even my 5 year old gobbled it up! Thanks.

I made this for New Years Day last year (tradition and such) and had several of my friends over. All I can tell you is that I should have made more. Every single drop was eaten, and one guy went back for thirds. THIRDS. Now, I'm sure that I altered the quantities of... everything... in small ways, but I suspect that even if you made it precisely as the recipe lays out, you would love it. As an aside, I was born and raised a southerner, and yes, cooking the rice separately would make my grandmother cry, but tough, it's delicious.

Delish exactly as directed! Perfect for cooking up and freezing smaller portions ahead--without rice it fits in the freezer even better and is a snap to prepare later. Thank you for this great recipe!
