Cajun Jambalaya

Due to food allergies my family had to learn to make lots of recipes from scratch. This is one of those that we learned to make including the seasoning mixture. This is one our favorites as it is very tasty.

How to Make Cajun Jambalaya


  • 1Mix all seasonings together. (Our family makes extra seasoning to have on hand for the next time we cook this meal so the measurements are approximate but the ratio is the same.)
  • 2Dice the chicken and cook on the stove top until completely cooked in a deep skillet. While the chicken is cooking sprinkle with one third of the seasoning mixture. Once the chicken is cooked set aside for next step.
  • 3Slice the sausage to 1/4 inch thickness. Put the sausage and shrimp in pan. Sprinkle with remaining two thirds of seasoning mixture on stove top about 10 minutes or until warm. These come precooked.
  • 4Once the sausage and shrimp are heated add back in the chicken and add diced celery, diced bell pepper and mix all these with tomato paste and diced tomatoes. Heat mixture for 10 minutes.
  • 5Serve on top of the cooked rice.
  • 6Enjoy!
