"I am very surprised that someone from LA identifies this as a Cajun dish - it is not. Cajun jambalaya does not include tomatoes. The inclusion of tomatoes makes it Creole based."

"So unbelievably delicious...I used andouille sausage, twice as much chicken and no ham, crushed tomatoes instead of diced (I have a rather childish issue toward the texture of tomatoes) and added a few dashes of Sriracha (would have used regular hot sauce, but I didn't have any and didn't realize it until I went to add it). Used 1 1/2 tsp cajun spice blend instead of salt, pepper and thyme. Wow was it good. I'm going to sub shrimp for the ham next time, and there will definitely be a next time!"

"It was excellent...made a few changes; added canned corn & crispy onions, used Anaheim green chile in place of green pepper, used Creole spice, didn't add the ham or parsley."

"I haven't eaten the meal yet because it is taking way longer than 1 hour for it to bake. We are going on 1 1/2 hours and there is still a lot of liquid...so beware when planning. I'll let you know if it tastes good. It ended up taking 1 hour and 40 minutes...but it was delicious!!! I will definitely make it again but plan for more time. :)"
