This is in no way Jambalaya. Jamabalaya is cooked WITH rice and everything else cooked together...and is not a soup or sauce ladled over rice. This is basically a chicken creole sauce over rice.
Really good. I added diced ham and shrimp also. We loved this. thank you for sharing with us.
I love the flavor of jambalaya but hate how mushy rice ruins the dish. This was dead on in flavor with no starchy mushy mouth feel. Followed the recipe but amped up the heat with hot sauce at the table. Excellent flavor and my brother in law can't stop raving about it.
i usually add the rice when masking jambalaya but i tried it this way. I must say i like it better not adding the rice and it makes for much better leftovers!!!! love this thanks!!!!
My Mom and I decided to have a cook off for Fat Tuesday! ha ha! She is doing a Seafood Gumbo and I decided on this recipe. I'm glad I did! It's extremely tasty! The only thing I had to do different (because my local Grocery Store is always limited on items) I bought Chorizo (thank goodness they at least had that) and they only had thin sliced boneless skinless Chicken Breasts which ended up fine too. Normally I always cook rice on the side but for this recipe, I thought I would add it in. It's cooking as we speak on low setting and tastes and looks good! I am not one for spice so I went really light on the Cayenne, but did add a tiny dash of crushed red pepper flakes. Cant wait for the Judge to get home and have his Dinner! and for My Mom to try it! I may drive some over there tonight! hee hee hee! Thanks for sharing!
I cooked this with the rice in it and it had a really nice consistancy, even the day after. I just added one more cup of stock and threw in 2 cups of white long grain rice. I also added some chopped ham.. It was absolutely amazing. I loved it. I'm going to make more and bring people over to fall in love with it too!
This was DEELIICIOUS. My friend walked into the house, smelled the air, and asked me if I was making jambalaya.. talk about authentic aromas! I didn't have any chicken on hand, so I just used sausages, ham and added some shrimp at the very end. I also added some bay leaves for a little extra flavour. I also made my jambalaya more on the spicier side and everyone loved it. I really like adding the jambalaya to the rice rather than having the rice already in there (especially when some people like a lot of rice and others like less) Great recipe; I'll definitely make this again! Thanks!
I have made this recipe about 5 times now and my family and I just love it. I like how flexible it is; you could add any protein or spices you wanted to it and it would still be delicious. In fact, I served this to my extended family a month or two ago, and they had never even heard of jambalaya let alone tried it and they still rave about it!
