Recipe by Diana Adcock
READY IN: 1hr 50mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Melt shortening in a large/huge saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cook chicken pieces until brown on all sides and cooked about half way through, around 20 minutes or so.
  • Remove and add onion, green pepper, celery and garlic.
  • Cook slowly stirring now and again until onions are tender.
  • Add sausage and cook 10 min more.
  • Return chicken and add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT rice and stir together well.
  • Cover and simmer for 30 min stirring now and again.
  • Remove cover and continue to cook until broth cooks down a bit-you don't want it too thick as the rice will soak up the juice.
  • Serve up the rice in bowls and ladle the Jambalaya on top, and offer more cayenne or Tabasco at the table.
  • ***I know that cooking the rice on the side and not in the dish will cause some to have a heart attack, but I've found the flavor much better this way, IMHO.
  • Diana.
