Hi sisters!

It is Tasty Tuesday with Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen. I will say this is one of my favortie times of the week because I can add a new recipe to my Recipe Box from sweet Janelle. If  you have stopped by her blog take a moment to visit her, you will be blessed and love her easy yummy recipes!

Today Janelle is sharing with us “Jambalaya”!

Last week whenI had my Mother and Father-in-law over for dinner we had this delicious Jambalaya! My Mother-in-law about fell out of her seat when she saw my Father-in-law get up from the table to help himself to seconds off the stove top…it made me feel good that an otherwise moderate eater would want more of one of my homemade meals ;) I have to say…this is very tasty! I love adding a bunch of ingredients to one dish…this is also naturally very food allergy friendly.

Saute onions, green pepper, celery and garlic in a large wok.

Slice sausage (of your choice- this is Kielbasa I had in the refrigerator already)

Add parsley, sausage, diced chicken, bay leaf and spices to the wok. Stir for about 5 mins

Here are my seasonings of choice! YUM!

Add tomato sauce, chicken broth, and diced tomatoes.

Rinse fresh de-shelled and de-veined shrimp

I sauteed the shrimp in a separate skillet (you can just add shrimp if you would like). Here I used butter, garlic, and parsley. My kidos love sauteed shrimp over pasta…I had a feeling Jambalaya would be a bit too spicy so I made a little pasta for them and this is what they had. I added the remaining shrimp to the Jambalaya at the very end.

Add rice and cover to cook to 45 mins until liquid is absorbed, add shrimp. If you wish, you may add more chicken broth to your desired consistency. I added 1 Tbsp of sugar and additional spices at the end to my liking.
