  • In a saucepan, prepare rice mix according to package directions. In addition, add one-half of the tomatoes into the rice preparation. After 12 minutes of cooking, add remaining tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and parsley. Continue to cook on low, covered, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

  • Add sausage, shrimp or chicken to rice, stir until heated through. Serve.

Tips

* Instead of 1/2 pound shrimp, you can substitute 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes.

I made this for lunch today & evidently didn't notice it called for the Zatarain's Jambalaya Rice Mix when I made out my grocery list so I had to improvise & make my own. I used 2 cups Minute rice & 2 cups of water & about 1 tsp. Cajun Seasoning instead. It was perfect. I used 13 med size shrimp instead of 1/2 cup. I also used the diced tomatoes with green chili's so didn't need to add extra Creole Seasoning. It also never said to add the 2 mixtures together at the end but I did. I would make this over again. Thanks Johnsonville. Read More

I had high hopes for this recipe because it looked and smelled wonderful. Unfortunately my family thought it was just ok. The recipe called for shrimp but in the recipe directions it said shrimp or chicken so I used chicken since I already had it in my freezer. I think our issue was the flavor of the rice with the diced tomatoes. It had too strong of a tomato flavor for us. I think if I had used the spicy tomatoes with chilies like another reviewer we might have liked it better. That being said - we thought the Johnsonville sausage had a really good flavor and I will definitely buy that again to use in a different recipe. Read More

I'm not a rice girl but my family is; I AM a Creole-Cajun-Anything-Blackened girl. I enjoyed this meal right along with them! Our grocery didn't carry the Johnsonville Andouille so we subbed in Italian and it worked just fine! We're a family of 7; we doubled the recipe and will have plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Wow! I really enjoyed this and it was super easy. I used a 14-oz package of Johnsonville's New Orleans-style andouille sausage and a 10-oz can of chicken. I did add a sauteed onion and green pepper because I like them in my jambalaya. Great recipe! Read More

Too much hot sauce! My husband loves spicy foods but even he said the heat on this detracted from the flavors. And I'm not sure that the rice mix is necessary. The seasonings add enough flavor that I'd rather use plain white rice next time and skip the additives from a boxed rice. That would help with the sodium content too. A few tweaks and I think this would be pretty tasty. Read More

whole family loved it! I used the "mild" Zatarains Jambalaya Rice mix. Also used turkey sausage 1/2 sweet and 1/2 spicy and the last of the tomatoes from the garden pureed (my kids hate pieces of tomato). nice flavor with some spice but not too much. as for the 1 star review that noted sodium....if you look at the nutrition info it's ALL out of whack! just an error somewhere. it's not overly salty Read More
