• Easy Cajun Jambalaya

    Cajun Jambalaya seems a bit overwhelming at first, when you see the list of ingredients, but it takes very little effort to put it all together in about 30 minutes and the flavor is divine!
    We prepare all of our veggies at the beginning of the week when we first purchase them, so they are vacuum sealed in mason jars cut up already for salads or to throw together meals like this one...

    You'll Need:
    12 medium shrimp, peeled & deveined
    4 ounces raw chicken, diced
    1 1/2 tablespoons Copycat
    Emerils Essence Creole Seasoning

    2 tablespoon olive oil
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    2 tablespoons chopped garlic
    1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
    3 bay leaves
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon hot sauce
    3/4 cup rice, uncooked
    3 cups chicken stock
    1 Kielbasa, sliced
    Salt and pepper


    In a bowl combine shrimp, chicken and Creole seasoning, and work in seasoning well, set it aside and let the flavors marry.



    In a large (deep) frying pan heat oil over high heat, then add onion, pepper and celery, saute for 3 minutes.

    Add garlic, tomatoes, bay leaves, Worcestershire and
    hot sauces.



    Stir in the uncooked rice and slowly add broth.

    Reduce heat to medium and cook until rice absorbs liquid and becomes tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.



    When rice is just tender add shrimp and chicken mixture and kielbasa.

    Cook until meat is done, about 10 minutes more. Season to taste with salt, pepper and Creole seasoning.
