  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently until soft. Add the chicken and continue cooking and stirring so that it does not stick. When the chicken is browned, add the carrots, celery, mushrooms, bell pepper and sausage.
  2. Pour in the broth, and bring to a boil. Add the rice, and season with cayenne, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes, until rice is tender and broth has been absorbed.

One of our household favorites because it is a one dish meal (no dishwasher) and is ready in under an hour from start to finish. And it is pretty healthy when I sub my favorite turkey sausage! ...

Although this was very tastey, it did not remind me of the Jambalaya I have had down south. I spruced it up a bit and added Talpia fish, but ommited the sausage(we dont eat read meat. I used an ...

Loved it. Did change the recipe a bit. Chicken sausage... more onion, a ton more spice and heat. The aroma stuck in the house overnight and I dreamed about it!

too bland...blah...would not make again
