Cajun Jambalaya recipe

A traditional Cajun jambalaya dish with a subtle hint of spices, this delicious and savory stew is less spicy than other versions of this Southern dish. Tender pieces of chicken and sausage are simmered with delicate spices and crunch vegetables for a hearty and easy dish perfect any night of the week.


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 oz beef sausage, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 c. uncooked white rice
  • 4 c. chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sauce


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add chicken and sausage and brown, approximately 5 minutes.
