“I have always loved Cajun foods but my wife doesn't like the 'kick.' In response to this, I made my traditional Jambalaya without the heat. Everyone loved this recipe and I hope you will to. Enjoy!”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Saute chicken and kielbasa until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Season with cayenne, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until onion is tender and translucent. Add rice, then stir in chicken stock and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce.

My family loves this recipe!! The only thing I do differently is to add 2-3 cans more of chicken broth, otherwise it is extremely pasty. It is pretty spicey but you can adjust that as well to your own tastes. It's easy and makes enough to freeze for later use.

I have been using this recipe since I found it on allrecipes.com a couple of years ago. This is a wonderful recipe by itself or used as a base. In the numerous times I have made this, I have added tomato sauce, extra garlic, and shrimp. My only suggestion, is if you have a tough time cooking the rice without making it sticky (a problem I always have), cook the rice separately and add it to the other simmered ingredients when it is done. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was great! After getting everything cut up, it was really easy to put together, and it was so yummy! I made just a few changes. I added about one and a half cans of diced tomatoes. I also used half green onions and half white onions. And I added about a tablespoon of cajun seasoning. It turned out great. I'll definitely make this again!
