My whole family loved this meal! It was so delicious. The balance of flavors is right on. The only substitutions I made were to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs, shrimp, and a chicken bouillon cube with water in place of the broth. Other than that, I followed it as directed. I left ours pretty mild, which is how we like it. I prepared white rice for my family and had mine over quinoa - delicious!!

Had a packet of chorizo I wanted to use up, made a few minor adjustments but it was very very delicious. It really makes a world of difference cooking the rice separately. Thanks for the wonderful recipe DiB's.

Awesome. I really like topping it over rice as opposed to cooking it all together. My wife does the same thing... I'm a late bloomer I guess. But great flavor on this one!

This was really good. I used to make the boxed stuff, but my family and myself loved this homemade version and will definately make it again. Thanks

This was delicious! I used chicken legs and thighs, cooked as described. I only used one pound of andouille sausage. I didn't think it was too hot but if you didn't want it hot you could probably just use kelbasa. I wasn't sure if the tomatoes were supposed to be drained, I will not drain them next time so there is more broth. The broth is so tasty I could just drink it. I like adding the rice seperately because I like a lot of rice and my husband does not.

I loved this recipe! Of course I made a few alterations: I served it with Spanish rice instead of white, and I ended up cooking the rice with the Jambalaya. I didn't intend to, as I was afraid it would become glue like, but I found that there was A LOT of liquid left even after simmering it down for a good half hour (hence 4 stars instead of 5). As luck would have it my rice was a little dry so it worked out well in the end but had that not been the case it would have been rather soupy. I love that there was nothing obscure in the ingredients, the only thing I had to shop for was the sausage.

This was very flavorful! While easy, the prep time was not 20 minutes. I was in the kitchen on my feet chopping and stuff for 1 hour before I was at a place to sit down and let the simmering take care of the rest. Cooked rice separately, and used 2 different kinds of sausage - Jalapeno and Cajun. The chicken didn't brown like I hoped it would, but it absorbed all the wonderful spices and flavors. My family loved it, and this recipe is definitely a keeper.

We LOVED this!! It was packed with flavour and the hot sausage added just enough heat to the dish along with all the fresh flavours and the chicken. The sauce was delicious as well and I kept spooning and spooning it over my rice!! I made it as the recipe stated with the rice separately and it was great - I've always been one for eating things separately!

This was spicy and excellent. I substituted half the green pepper for hot pepper. And decreased the celery because some in the family don't like it. I might try to add more vegetables next time. I will definitely make this again the next time we are looking for a spicy meal. The consistency was good- not too thick, not too runny.
