Anti-Seafood Jambalaya

"I've always loved the flavors of jambalaya but can rarely enjoy it because I hate seafood. SO I created my own New Orleans-style jambalaya without seafood, just sausage and chicken."

  • In a soup pot, heat 1 tbsp oil. Add sausage and chicken and cook until brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mix to a large bowl.
  • In the same pot, heat remaining oil and add celery, onion, and bell pepper. Cook about 5 minutes.
  • Add bay leaves, garlic, thyme, salt and cayenne pepper, cook 2 minutes longer.
  • Return sausage mix to the pot, add uncooked rice, broth, and tomatoes.
  • Bring mix to a boil and reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer, covered, 20 minutes. Cook until rice is tender about 10 minutes longer and remove bay leaves.
  • Sprinkle with scallions and serve.

  1. Wow, this was incredible. I used pork andouille sausage and added a generous amount of cayenne pepper since we like spicy food and it was fantastic.
  2. You forgot to mention the scallions in the cooking process...
  3. Being from Louisiana I like jambalaya also.I make it using pork chops and I sometimes add sliced cajun sausage.A very good cold weather dish and filling.Smells up the house in a good way.Thanks for your version,I will try it soon. I tried this and really like it,I halved it tho.I put sausage and shrimp for me in one half and the other I left as is for bf.We both enjoyed it very much.
