Cajun Jambalaya is full of andouille sausage, chicken, the holy trinity, and has all of the flavors of an authentic Louisiana recipe! This easy one-pot meal is gluten-free and makes a healthier Cajun dinner or Mardi Gras recipe.
In a large pot, or Dutch oven, add 1 tablespoon oil and sausage. Cook for 2 minutes.
Add chicken and continue cooking over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, or until it is cooked through.
Remove meat from the pot and set aside.
Drizzle another tablespoon of olive oil into the Dutch oven and then add onion, celery and bell pepper. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or until vegetables are almost tender. Add garlic and saute for an additional 2 minutes.
In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, thyme, basil and cayenne pepper. Toss to combine.
Add seasoning mix, Worcestershire, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes to the meat and veggies. Stir to combine.
Next, place rice and 4 ½ cup broth in the pot. Stir to completely combine.
Bring contents to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover the pot with a lid and let simmer for 30-40 minutes.
Check on the jambalaya at 25 minutes and see if it needs additional liquid. If you have a pot that burns, this would be a good time to give the bottom of your pot a stir to loosen up any potentially dried rice.
Once rice is completely cooked, serve immediately with fresh parsley and enjoy! See this recipe in Meal Plan #7
