Quick and Easy Jambalaya

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars
0

"This recipe is a quick and easy way to enjoy jambalaya without spending too much time in the kitchen. It has just enough spice to give it a kick without making it too spicy. I use turkey kielbasa to make this recipe a little more healthy. I also suggest making your own home-mixed Cajun seasoning to avoid too many unnecessary additives."

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Boil sausage until hot, 8 to 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat canola oil in a pot over medium-high heat; saute sausage, celery, bell pepper, and onion in hot oil until vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir chicken and Cajun seasoning into the vegetable mixture. Pour broth and tomatoes into the pot; bring to a boil, add the rice, and stir. Return mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover pot, and simmer mixture until for 5 minutes. Remove cover, stir, and continue to simmer until the rice has absorbed the liquid and is tender, about 5 minutes more.

Be sure to drain the water. The recipe does not really say how much water to use. The taste was fairly good. I cooked some chicken breast instead of using can.

Made it per directions and it was wonderful... next I make it I'll add a little more spice to for my own personal taste. Definite keeper for a quick meal!

This is a great recipe! If you use regular rice like I did that's not instant you may need to add some more liquid. It was easy to make my own seasoning by doing an internet search for Cajun sea...

Great recipe. I added garlic and shrimp. I think the rice measurement may e referring to the cooked rice, I halfed it (to better match the amount of liquid) when measuring the uncooked rice and ...

I was skeptical, but I needed to throw something together quickly. This was absolutely devoured by my family of 4. (Everyone had seconds.) Is it "authentic"? Not exactly, but one pot in ~30 minu...

Awesome awesome awesome ! Easy recipe and so delicious. I accidentally cooked the rice before mixing together but it worked out just fine. I used green peppers instead and added shrimp. Scrumpti...

We love this recipe. Flavorful and easy. I make it quite frequently. Thanks for the recipe.
