Jambalaya Recipe

Gasman1Gasman1 Posts: 108 Deckhand
Does anyone have a good Jambalaya recipe they can share? I have a couple but they do not compare with some of the Jambalaya I have had along the Louisana Coast.

Thanks in advance

    Google up the one from Emeril. I've made it before and it was really, really good.

    ok here it is. Don't tell my Cajun girlfriend I shared it :)
    One whole chicken quartered (you can buy it like this)
    3 cans rotel
    2 red bell peppers
    1 large onion
    lots of garlic !!!
    large link Smoked sausage
    couple bay leaves
    Parboiled rice

    Boil all the chicken and add vegetable discards (cores , butts, etc) season as you like, cook sausage in pot and remove. Drain chicken and KEEP THE BROTH (this will be used for the rice). Slice and dice up all your veggies and cans of rotel and put into the pot you cooked your sausage in. Let chicken cool and pick the meat away from bones and add to your pot. Add everything EXCEPT BROTH and simmer for about 45 min.
    Add rice add chicken broth. I use 2 cups of broth for every one cup of rice. I usually use 2 cups of rice for this recipe. Simmer for about 1/2 hour. Keep tasting to see if rice is done, add hot sauce, everglades seasoning, tonys, etc. You can add shrimp, etc at same time as chicken.
    Sorry if it sounds confusing, doing my best !!!!
    oh PS, you'll be tempted to start picking the chicken apart to soon, wait because your fingers will thank you
