This is excellent. It froze well also.

My mother is creole and use to make something that tastes similar however she never called it jambalaya. Maybe because it was usually just chicken and sausage. I thought that this had a nice kick (I added cayenne, pepper and a bit more creole seasoning). I think this would be better with cut okra because it tastes almost exactly like my okra and tomatoes. I think next time I will add okra to this!

Made this according to recipe except I left the adding of the Louisiana-style hot sauce to each individual according to their personal taste, which worked out perfectly.

The taste was awesome. I did find that it had a lot of juice. I just drained it off and used it to make some SERIOUSLY good rice!

This is amazing! My husband said he felt like he was in New Orleans :) The only thing I did different was to put in raw shrimp and let it cook for about 20 minutes. Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing!

I made this for a large family gathering. Many of us had never eaten it before, and it was a hit!

I had boneless chicken thighs on hand, which I used instead by cutting them up, salting them and partially cooking them. I omitted the celery and red pepper since I didn't have them on hand, as well as the extra thyme since it was already in my homemade Cajun seasoning.Everyone enjoyed it with hush puppies.

My husband loves the Cajun seasoning on everything so this recipe was a big hit. We used our own homemade Andouille sausage. It even gets better the next day. THANK YOU !!! Great Recipe !!!!
