Another one of my charactor's from Escapades, Jazz trumpeter, Reed Nelson passed this recipe on to me...His band was recently in New Orleans and he raved about this ....Krewe Jambalaya....
|5 cups water|
|1/4 cup oil (optional)|
|2 packages ZATARAIN'S® Jambalaya Mix, Original (Shameless unpaid plug for a company!)|
|1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed|
|1 pound smoked sausage, sliced 1/4-inch thick|
|1/2 cup sliced green onions (optional)|
1. Bring water and oil to boil in large saucepan. Stir in Rice Mixes, chicken and sausage; return to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 minutes or until rice is tender.
2. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions before serving.
Tips Variation: Two cups cubed cooked ham and/or 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and halved crosswise, may be added to rice mixture after 10 minutes of cooking time. Continue as directed.
