Read the Story Behind the Recipe

Tip #1

- Almost any sausage without fennel seasoning can be used in jambalaya in place of kielbasa.

Tip #2

- 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.

Tip #3

- Depending on the size of the chicken, 1 purchased rotisserie chicken will yield between 3 to 4 cups chopped chicken.
