This is absolutely delicious! A stand-by-itself meal with just the right amount of Cajun kick!
I served it in a soup bowl, as it's like a stew, accompanied by a hurricane in celebration of Fat Tuesday. Excellent recipe that I will most definitely make repeatedly !
I made 3 small changes:
1) tossed the cubed chicken breast in Cajun seasoning before browning
2) added 1 lb of precooked andouille sausage cut into cubes and browned with the chicken
3) used chicken broth rather than water
My husband I like to vist LA during Mardi Gras season, but didn't make it there this year. I wanted to make a NOLA style dish for celebrating Mardi Gras at home and came apon this recipe. I add a pound of Andouille Sausage (slliced). I bought the minute rice by accident, so I reduced the water (which by the way cut down on the cooking time).
My family went crazy for this dish. Unlike the traditional Jambalya, this is a healthy dish. I have made it many times since Mardi Gras and my family enjoys it every time.
We made this for Fat Tuesday! Just delicious~left out the mushrooms because of my son-in-law's dislike and we added shrimp! So good-everyone loved it!
This was one of the first recipes I tried from the Taste of Home Cookbook and it was so delicious.
Usually when I try a recipe for the first time, I'll make notes for adjustments to it for the next try. This recipe needs no adjustment, it's savory and delicious as it is.
The leftovers will probably be really killer good tomorrow! Good noms.
