Jambalaya

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 pound andouille sausage thinly sliced into rounds
  • 3 small bell peppers cored and diced (I used a yellow red and green bell pepper)
  • 2 ribs celery diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 3–4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning or Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pound raw large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup thinly-sliced okra*
  • Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper
  • optional garnishes: chopped fresh parsley thinly-sliced green onions hot sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a stock pot (or a very large deep sauté pan) over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sausage and sauté for 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally until the chicken is cooked through and the sausage is lightly browned. Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the stock pot. Add bell peppers celery jalapeño onion and garlic. Sauté for 6 minutes stirring occasionally until the onions are softened.
  3. Add the crushed tomatoes chicken stock rice Cajun seasoning thyme cayenne bay leaf and stir to combine. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer. Then reduce heat to medium-low cover and simmer for about 25-30 minutes or until the rice is nearly cooked through stirring every 5 minutes or so along the way so that the rice does not burn.
  4. Add the shrimp okra and stir to combine. Continue to simmer stirring occasionally until the shrimp are cooked through and pink. Stir in the chicken and sausage and remove and discard the bay leaf.
  5. Taste season the jambalaya with salt pepper and additional Cajun seasoning if needed. (I typically add about 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.) Remove from heat.
  6. Serve warm with your desired garnishes. Or refrigerate and store in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

NOTES*Feel free to use fresh or frozen okra. If using frozen make sure to thaw it before adding to the jambalaya.If you like spicy jambalaya I would recommend adding in 2 jalapeños. If you would like it more mild you can omit the jalapeño altogether.This article and recipe adapted from this site
