This Chicken Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya recipe is an easy to prepare delicious one pot meal filled with spices that will remind you of Louisiana.
Visiting New Orleans last year spiked my interest and desire to cook more cajun and creole food. So, my first attempt was a comfort food meal, Chicken Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya. I figured this was the perfect recipe to begin with because it is a simple dinner to prepare and filled with ingredients that my family loves. Serve a salad with this one pot of deliciousness and supper is complete.
This recipe leaves the opportunity to add any protein you might like. Other shellfish or even pork would be delectable additions. If you are a vegetarian, make your jambalaya with vegetable broth and your favorite vegetables! The spice can be adjusted to be as spicy as you might like it. I use Emeril’s Essense spice but feel free to use any creole spice and amount that suits your internal heat thermometer. Also, it’s not included in the recipe below, but if you like a bit more heat, why not add a diced jalapeño?
