How to Make Easy Cooking Jambalaya


  1. Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium high heat. Add chicken and sausage and cook, stirring constantly until browned on all sides - approx. 8-10 min. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels and blot well.
  2. Add onion, bell pepper, and celery and saute until translucent. Add garlic, bay leaves, creole seasoning, thyme and oregano to hot drippings; cook over medium-high until vegetables are tender, another 5-7 minutes. Stir in rice and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, chicken and sausage. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally until rice is tender about 20 minutes.
  3. Garnish with sliced scallions if desired.
