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 !

Step-by-Step

Add garlic, tomatoes, bay leaves, Worcestershire and hot sauces. Stir in rice and slowly add broth. 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.
