New Orleans’ Chicken, Smoked Sausage and Red Bean Jambalaya (for 1)
Jay’s New Orleans’ Chicken, Sausage, and Red Bean Jambalaya starts by preparing a classic Creole sauce (made with crushed tomatoes, celery, onions, bell peppers, okra, garlic, parsley, thyme, paprika, and a trio of cayenne, black and white peppers). The piquant sauce slowly cooks and simmers, then we add shredded and diced chicken, sliced smoked sausage (pork and beef) and let the sauce cook and steep until the flavors meld together. Served over red beans and rice. #BAM!
*For a true jambalaya, reheat and stir the Creole chicken and sausage mixture with the rice and beans all together in a skillet, then re-plate.
