Jambalaya Recipe | Lady Luxe Life

Jambalaya means New Orleans to me, and it’s almost Mardi Gras…which reminds me 100% of Louisiana.  I’m a big fan of making Jambalaya this time of year, and thought I’d share a good recipe!

I really like mixing Chicken and Sausage, and found this one on the Southern Living site.  They definitely have some of the best recipes!

First, the ingredients!!

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • pound smoked sausage (such as Conecuh sausage), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • large white onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • green bell pepper, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped celery (about 1 stalk)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 cups uncooked converted rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (14.5 oz.) cans diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • Sliced scallions (optional)

And then, the recipe is quite simple!

Step 1

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high. Add chicken and sausage, and cook, stirring constantly, until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels; blot with paper towels.

Step 2

Add onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic, bay leaves, Creole seasoning, thyme, and oregano to hot drippings; cook over medium-high until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in rice, and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, chicken, and sausage. Bring to a boil over high. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Garnish with sliced scallions, if desired.
