    Nadia NYC's Note:

    From one of my favorite cookbooks, The Best of The Best from Louisiana. With my many travels to New Orleans, I haven't found a Jambalaya that beats this one. It's a tad laborious and requires some time but it's well worth it. I usually double up the recipe as it holds very well. I also find it tastes better the next day.

      Aaaaeeeee! That's Cajun for Yeeehaw. I lived in Louisiana for a short while, but fell in love with Cajun / Creole cooking while there. I usually make Jambalaya from a "kit". It's pretty good, but who knows what is really in there. This recipe is very very good and not too time consuming. I took a few short cuts since I already had some beer can chicken and homemade Andouille sausage ready to throw in. I boiled about 6 cups of chicken broth and them simmered 2 cups of rice in that while I combined the rest of the ingredients in a large sauce pan. After the rice was done I combined it all and simmered for about 30 minutes. No more kits. Excellent. Thanks Nadia NYC!

      This was excellent! I used turkey sausage and substituted shrimp for ham. I ended up adding three more cups of stock (maybe because I had a larger chicken, plus the lower fat ingredients?) at the end. So tasty. Thanks so much for the recipe!
