Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

chicken and sausage jambalaya

Hi, All!

It’s Saturday I have a little more time to put dinner together. I was a little nervous because it’s my first time making Jambalaya. My mom’s is AMAZING which means I’m pretty much measuring mine against hers. Scott and I are both in for the night and I figured it makes a great date night meal — just an idea 😉

Remember that you can add shrimp (very common) but I didn’t feel like going through the trouble of deveining them. Yes, even though it’s the weekend I don’t want extra work, LOL. Another thing to note is I hate measuring things, especially seasoning. What I suggest is to season to your taste. And lastly, feel free to sub anything in the recipe for what you may have on hand or your preference.


  • red, green, and yellow bell peppers
  • 2 1/2 cups Jasmine rice
  •  4 1/2 cups water
  • turkey sausage
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded chicken

  • Creole seasoning
  • salt & pepper
  • seasoning salt
