This is my take on Jambalaya, a creole dish of rice, chicken, prawns and sausages with a few herbs and veg thrown in as well. I really like this recipe as it only requires on pot, I use a dutch oven. Another added bonus my 3 year old gobbles it up!
2 onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 sticks of celery
1 tsp of lazy garlic
2 tsp paprika
300g of skinless boneless chicken but into bite-size pieces
100g of Kabanos sausages, chopped
400g tin of chopped tomatoes
450g of Basmati rice
1 litre of chicken stock
1 tsp of oregano
2 bay leaves
200g King Prawns
2 spring onions
Heat the oil in the Dutch oven then add the onions, green pepper, celery and garlic. Sauté for about 10 minutes until soft.
Add the paprika and cook for a further minute. Add the chicken and sausage and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Add the rice and stir well. Throw in the tinned tomatoes, chicken stock, oregano and bay leaves. Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes. You will need to stir it occasionally, don’t panic if it sticks to the bottom. You may also find that you may need to add a bit more liquid.
Add the prawns and cook for approx 6-8 minutes. The majority of the liquid should be absorbed.
Just before serving stir in the spring onions.
