This is a one-skillet chicken and rice dish with veggies, herbs and just a slight spicy kick!

Thank You..Thank You...Thank You. I have found so many "Jambalaya" recipes that add really strange and non traditional ingredients and then forget what makes Jambalaya what it is...the spices. This is the first recipe in a long time that I have seen that remembers to put Thyme in the list of ingredients. It turned out wonderful! Hats off to you Suzanne!

All the ingredients are there to make this a really great dish but this did not turn out well at all. I had to add sugar to it to bring down the acidity. The seasonings were off as well. My bf and I always like what we have cooked from this site but this time we both agreed--this was not good. My suggestion to the person who wants to make this still is cut back on the thyme maybe and use real garlic instead of garlic salt.

Yummy. The first time I made this recipe I followed it exactly and it was good. I made it again tonight and instead of using white rice I used the small 5 oz. package of Vigo yellow rice and the whole 14 ounces of chicken broth. Very moist and much tastier.

This recipe was okay not a big fan of spicy food so I ommitted the hot sauce used red pepper flakes instead. I would recommend more thyme and basil to the recipe.

I invited a guest to my home for dinner who was from Alabama. This was the request for dinner and I had never made it before. Allrecipes to the rescue. My guest had 2 servings and said it tasted like Mom's! I did add about a pound of raw shrimp just before serving as well as a broiled hot sausage. It was great! Thanks. CS Kaysville Utah

First time making Jambalaya...Ive never even tried it because I dont like seafood. I made this last night for some friends and everyone scraped their bowls clean. My boyfriend doesnt care for pork so I just made this with the chicken cooked the rice before which worked well also added some cayenne and garlic. Not too hot but hot enough...I had to ask my friend whom is Creole if it looked/tasted right...he gave me the thumbs up!! Will definitely make this again everyone was upset there werent any leftovers even though I doubled the recipe. So quick and easy to make!! Love it!

This is a quick easy meal to make. I used shrimp & smoked sausage instead of the chicken. Since I used instant rice I did reduce the broth (could use just water) to 2/3c also. Next time I'll try bacon grease instead of the butter. Served with cornbread this meal was very filling.
