Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse Show I suggest omitting the rice and making a batch of rice seperate. Then serving the Jambalaya over a bed of rice. I'm still working on this one. Made this awhile back and it was GOOD !

Reduce heat to medium and cook until rice absorbs liquid and becomes tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. When rice is just tender add shrimp and chicken mixture and sausage.
