Vickie's Quick & Easy Jambalaya

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by vickiegon

After watching so many people cook Jambalaya in my lifetime I thought that there had to be a easier and quicker way to get that great flavor on a busy schedule. This is what I came up with on evening and my family fell in love and have shared with lots of friends. Enjoy!!!

Great easy recipe for a quick meal. It does not have the depth of flavor of a true from scratch Jambalaya but certainly is a great meal! I did need to add extra broth and time because my rice didn't cook well. And I used Emeril's Bayou Seasoning. The kids loved it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray with cooking spray a pan large enough to cook entire meal in one pan.(I use 4 quart pan) over medium high heat.
  2. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink.
  3. Add in Sausage, onions, green peppers and garlic. (If your mixture sticks just add a tiny bit of water and stir.).
  4. Once onions are tender add rice, chicken broth, chicken bouquet and enough Tony's seasoning to your taste.
  5. Bring to boil.
  6. Cover and lower temperature to low (1 or 2) and cook for 25 minutes. (Do not open lid until timer goes off.).
  7. Stir it up and serve with Green beans or side salad.
  8. enjoy!
  9. I would love to know what you think after you have eaten. I have very picky eaters and this is a "Winner in my home every time".
