Tried this recipe and this was great! The only thing I changed was instead of turkey sausage I used Andouille sausage.
I made this Jambalaya on a busy week night. It was quick, easy and my kids loved it. The only alteration I made was omitting the chicken to save time. It was fabulous even still.
I used this recipe as an idea to make my own version of Jambalaya. I first sauteed onions and green peppers in oil before adding 1 cubed up chicken breast, and some sliced smoked sausage. I then added a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and a can of chicken broth and brought to a boil before adding the box of Zaatarain's Jambalaya mix. When the rice was almost tender, I added the shrimp, about half of a beer (because I thought it needed more liquid), some worchestershire sauce, and some hot sauce. So simple with great results.
