Louisiana Jambalaya

This is my version of Louisiana Jambalaya. I used rotisserie chicken and smoked kielbasa (or andouille) instead of seafood. There are so many wonderful vegetables in this dish that are combined with the meat and rice….. you have to try it! It has a kick with the pepper and cayenne pepper but just enough to taste delicious!

  1. Hi Diane! I made Jambalya this week too! It was my first time. The recipes between the both of us are very similar. I liked it. My mom said it was dry on the 2nd day. But I said she should’ve added some water or broth to rehydrate it while cooking. How was yours on the 2nd day?
