Reviews for Jambalaya Skillet
"I have been making this meal for a long time! Love it! I have been adding about 2 cups of cubed ham that I froze from leftover holiday ham."
"This is an excellent jambalaya recipe. I added the onions, pepper and sausage to the partially cooked chicken to brown them all for more flavor and color and then added the broth and tomatoes. Delicious!!"
"Quick and tasty. I use new orleans style sausage or hot beef links to spice it up"
