Making Jambalaya!
Posted by The Marketing Team on 21 May 2014 / 0 Comment

Jambalaya finds it's roots in the Cajun, Creole and Spanish cultures of our state!  It is a weekly favorite with most Louisiana families.  We created a few short cuts along the way to make it easy for you!


What you'll need, ingredients:

  • One 8 ounce package of Denicola's Jambalaya Gourmet Mix
  • Three cups of water
  • One pound of raw or cooked chicken, cut into bite size pieces (you can substitute pork, turkey or seafood)
  • One pound of sausage cut into bite size pieces


Bring three cups of water to a boil in a pot on the stovetop. Next, stir in the gourmet mix.  Lower heat and add your chicken and sausage. We like to prep our meats into bite size pieces.  Bring to a low boil, then, cover and let simmer (lower heat) for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Uncover, fluff rice and check to make sure it is done.  Serve warm!


Here's a few helpful hints from our kitchen:

  • Running late, grab a rotisserie chicken from the market or a can of chicken - both work fine!
  • It's ok to add water if your rice is not fully cooked - it's the steam that finishes the process!  Start with one half cup.


Happy Cooking from ~The Marketing Team
