Jambalaya Skillet Recipe

Quick, easy and delicious is how Norlene Razak describes her fantastic, full-flavored skillet supper. “It remains a real standby recipe for me,” writes the Kyle, Texas cook. “I can always turn out a tasty batch of it in a hurry for unexpected company, yet it's a little more special than many spur-of-the-minute meals.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked instant rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional

"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!!"
