I've tried a few jambalaya recipes, none of which really appealed to me. This one, however, is excellent! I used leftover roasted chicken & left out the shrimp, as I didn't have any on hand. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. We gobbled it up! We love Cajun-style food, so I'm very pleased that I now have a jambalaya recipe to add to our dinner rotation.
This is the best jambalaya I have ever tasted. Will definitely make again.
Totally loved this Jambalya. Easy to make and delicious.
This was the best jambalaya I have found so far. I have made several recently, all different recipes, and this is the best. Next time, the only thing I would do differently is use tomatoes with chiles instead of plain diced tomatoes..
LOVE IT!!! Reminds me of Po' Folks gumbo!
