30 min.total time
1 medium (1 cup) green bell pepper, chopped
2 ribs (1/2 cup) celery, chopped
4 medium (1/2 cup) green onions, sliced
1 1/2 cups uncooked instant white rice
1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups skinned, boned, chopped deli rotisserie chicken
6 ounces (1 cup) kielbasa sausage, chopped
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained
Salt, if desired
Pepper, if desired
- Almost any sausage without fennel seasoning can be used in jambalaya in place of kielbasa.
- If you like less spice in your food, substitute tomatoes without green chiles. If you like more spice, you can add hot sauce, a staple condiment in New Orleans cooking. Pass extra at the table for those who like a lot of heat. The condiment aisle of the grocery store will offer several brands. They all have their own unique flavor.
- Depending on the size of the chicken, 1 purchased rotisserie chicken will yield between 3 to 4 cups chopped chicken.
