One Pan Jambalaya

I made jambalaya on Sunday and we are still eating the left overs. This recipe is super easy and super good.

1/2 Kielbasa sausage, chopped; I used turkey kielbasa
1 large onion
1 medium green pepper
1 medium red pepper
1 celery stalk
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 lb of chicken breast, cooked and cubed
28 oz can of tomatoes with juice; I used diced so they were bite sized
2 cups of chicken broth
2 cups of uncooked white rice
1/4 tsp of cayeene pepper (or more if you, like us, want it spicy)
1/2 tsp of black pepper
1/2 tsp of thyme

First chop up all the veggies and the sausage

Then saute the sausage over high heat until it is crispy and brown on the edges. Add onion, celery, green and red peppers. Continue to saute ingredients until the veggies are tender.

Reduce the heat and add spices and garlic. I added about 1/2 tsp of salt also. Let it cook for about 5 minutes.

Add chicken, tomatoes, broth and rice. Bring to a simmer , cover and let the rice cook; about 15 minutes.

Then you are ready to serve and eat-YUM! Clean-up is a breeze since it doesn't require lots of pots and pans and this is a totally easy dish for a weeknight too.
