"Over the years my family has made this dish. I've always known it as jambalaya, but years ago found out it wasn't the traditional jambalaya served in a spicy or zesty tomato-based dish. This is my family's twist on it. We love it very much. It's our comfort food. I've made quicker adjustments on my family's recipe for a faster prep time. And this recipe is scaled down. It's normally twice this size for our huge family."

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from pot and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the large pot. Cook the onion, green onion, and parsley in the butter until the onions begin to soften, 4 to 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the chicken broth, cooked chicken, sausage, and rice; bring to a boil for 2 minutes and then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Do not remove cover or stir while simmering. Serve hot.

This was awesome!!! My whole family loved it, even the picky little girls! I didnt have any green onion, so I just left it out, and I didnt have any fresh parsley, so I used a little dried. Will definately be making this again!! Thanks for the recipe!!

I decided to give this a try, and I am glad I did. My family really enjoyed it. I have a picky 11 year old and a non-picky 8 year old and they both liked it!!!! I will definitely make it again!

This was my family's recipe...not a traditional jamabalaya but our comfort dish, we add a few splashes of soy sauce when served up in the bowl...don't know how that got started but it's our favorite way to eat this. Light in flavor and warm in the belly. This is a great dish when it's gloomy out side.
