We've brought that signature New Orleans-style cooking into your very own kitchen with our homemade recipe for Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya. We like pairing this dish with some veggies for an extra bit of color on the plate. Serve this homemade New Orleans favorite anytime you feel the need to jump start your regular dinner routine.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, divided
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen seasoning blend, thawed and drained
  • 2 teaspoons prepared minced garlic
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with zesty mild green chilies, undrained
  • 1 extra-large bag boil-in-bag white rice, removed from bag
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth

What to Do

  1. Combine chicken and 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning in a bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and chicken; saute 6 minutes or until browned on all sides. Remove from pan; drain.
  3. Add seasoning blend and garlic to pan; saute 2 minutes or until heated thoroughly. Add sausage, chicken, remaining 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, the tomatoes, rice, and broth to pan. Bring to a boil; cover and boil 11 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring halfway through cooking time.


I call for boil-in-bag rice to speed up the cooking time of this Creole favorite. But instead of cooking the rice separately in its bag, we add it straight to the pan so it can absorb the liquid and all the savory flavors as it cooks.

AL mom, thanks for the info about the seasoning blend. it seems like quite a few, including me, did not know about it.

Is the chicken going to be cooked enough?

The brand of seasoning blend that is available at my walmart and other local stores is Pictsweet. It is a blend of onions, celery, green and red peppers and parsley flakes. I love using it for a short cut in many recipes and always keep some in my freezer. It is more economical than purchasing all the vegetables separately. It saves a lot of chopping time and you can use as much or as little as you need and return the rest to the freezer. Hope ya'll can find it where you live.

What is frozen seasoning blend?????

I still do Not know what the blend is. How can it be helpful if you do not tell us .

frozen seasoning blend is mix season in a plastic pack found in the frozen food section, in the grocery store.

What are you referring to when you say, "10 oz. frozen seasoning blend"??? You need a better description. Could it be vegetables?

I'd like to find out where I can buy the seasoning blend so I can prepare this for our Good Friday dinner.
