Jambalaya {recipe #35}

Sometimes you just need a meal that is a little something out of the ordinary!

Why not try this jambalaya recipe to spice things up a little?!?

Jambalaya
{Borrowed, Adapted and Enjoyed from: Country Woman Magazine}


This recipe serves 9 so we cut it in half for ourselves.

Ingredients: 

6 fully cooked sausages {any kind, spicy, mild.. chicken etc}
1/2 lb chicken tenderloin cut into small slices 
1 T. olive oil
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 3/4 cups chicken broth
1 (14 1/2 oz) can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp. cajun seasoning

1) In a large pot {we use our dutch oven} saute sausage and chicken in oil for 5 minutes. Add the veggies and saute again for 6-8 minutes.
2) Stir in broth, tomatoes, rice and spices.
3) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender. Make sure to stir often so it doesn't stick to the bottom!
4) Let stand for 5 minutes! Its HOT! :)

Enjoy!

What is your favorite recipe to spice up your weekly menu?

All for now,
