What's Jambalaya?

Jambalaya, for those who might not know, is a vibrant dish from Louisiana in the USA. It's a hearty mix of chicken, sausages, rice, and veggies, all simmered in a pot of spicy, flavorful goodness. It’s like a party in a pot!

  • Chicken breasts (cut into pieces)
  • Smoked sausage (sliced)
  • Bell peppers, onions, and celery (chopped)
  • Garlic (minced)
  • Rice
  • Chicken stock
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Cajun seasoning, thyme, and bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste

This dish is all about bringing simple ingredients together to create something magical.

Start with the chicken and sausage: In a large pot, cook the chicken and sausage until they're nicely browned. This step is crucial for that deep, meaty flavour.

Veggies time: Toss in the onions, bell peppers, celery, and garlic. Cook them until they're soft and lovely.

Spice it up: Add the Cajun seasoning, thyme, and bay leaf. This mix will give your jambalaya its distinctive, zesty flavour.

Rice and liquid: Stir in the rice, chicken stock, and canned tomatoes. The liquid should cover everything nicely.

Let it simmer: Reduce the heat, cover the pot, and let it simmer away. The rice will absorb all those incredible flavours.

Final touches: Once the rice is cooked and the chicken is tender, give it a good stir, and voila! Your jambalaya is ready to serve.
