Zap Ya Jambalaya

Want to Zap the taste buds? Then this is just the ticket. My family loves this Jambalaya! I’m not a fish person, so I just scoop some into a bowl before adding the shrimp.

Also, this comes together real quick. So, if you have everything, it’s great for a week night meal as well.

Recipe from:


First: Cook the rice and leave covered until ready to use.

Saute the chicken in the olive oil and butter

Add the andouille sausage and cook a few more minutes.

Add the celery, onion, green bell pepper, bay leaves and cayenne

Saute this for about 5 minutues or so until the onions are translucent.

Sprinkle the flour over the mixture, stirring everything and allow to cook for a minute or two (to get the flour taste out)

Add the tomatoes, broth, rest of the seasonings, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil.

**At this point, if you don’t like fish, put some in a separate bowl or pot for yourself (or whomever doesn’t like fish)

Add the shrimp and continue cooking for about 5 minutes (until the shrimp is pink) Keep an eye on it as it doesn’t take long to cook the shrimp.

Take a taste of the liquid. If you’d like more salt and pepper, add some now.

If all done. Ladle into bowls and top with a scoop of the rice. Top with green onions and thyme. (I didn’t have thyme when I made this so I omitted it)

I serve hot corn bread with ours!
