    Kevin Young's Note:

    A good recipe I got from a Justin Wilson cookbook. I didn't change much just tweaked a few things and halved the recipe, so it's pretty true to his recipe. This is nice and mild, not a lot of spice so my wife likes it. I have to add at least a tsp of Tabasco to each bowl though. I hope you enjoy it.

      I'm a big fan of jambalaya. I doubled the onions and garlic and added some worchestershire. I browned the chicken very well in order to have a good base of drippings. I sauted the vegetable mixture until the onions were carmelized in order to get that extra flavor. I also added black pepper and added a little more salt. Using boneless chicken breasts also makes for a very easy dish.

      This is a good recipe, however I think andouille sausage is more traditionally used in cajun cooking.

      This was a wonderful dish. I'm half Cajun and have had a lot of Jambalaya in my lifetime and this was one of the better recipes. I prefer this kind without the tomatoes. It had a good flavor and just the right amount of "bite." I don't like onions so we didn't add them. Didn't miss them one bit.
