When we make this jambalaya at home (at least once a week), we add chicken, as well as some fresh andouille sausage that our local grocery makes. I often have people beg me for the recipe, then have to tell them that it was a mix. Not only is this a great-tasting, hearty meal, it couldn't be easier to prepare; and it only takes about 30 minutes! And with the $10 discount that Amazon is offering right now, the price on this 12-pack can't be beat.
I was looking to make a fast meal one evening, so I bought two boxes of the rice mix, a package of Hillshire Farms Beef Polish Sausage and a package of their Smoked Sausage. I had about 1/2 pound of precooked frozen shrimp in the freezer. I simply sliced up half of each package of sausage and put the other half in the freezer for another meal, and then I thawed out the shrimp. I pan fried/sauteed the slices of sausages to bring out the flavor. It was then as simple as boiling 5 cups of water in my large chicken fryer (I did not add the optional oil) and adding the rice mixture, sausage, and shrimp. I simmered it covered for about 25 or 30 minutes...till the water was absorbed. The whole prep and cook time was perhaps 45 minutes. It made enough for a family of six if you add a side salad...or in our case, lunch for tomorrow too! My husband says it's a keeper. I agree.
When I had more time, I tried mixing smoked sausage and grilled chicken. The chicken was marinated with an off-the-shelf louisiana cajun style marinade and then grilled. Slice and put the chicken in at the end when the rest is done (or the chicken will dry out being "cooked" a second time) and it was fantastic. Since the point of this meal is to be quick, I only did this method once, but it was great.
Only downside is that the meal is a bit oily, and leaves a residue at the bottom of your dish. This just reminds you that this dish is better served as a guilty pleasure than an everyday meal.
Mix. This is a rice mix with all the proper seasonings included, but you can add garlic, cayenne, and sauteed onions, and to
make this complete...add chicken stock instead of water for a real treat. You can serve it as a side dish or add sausage,
chicken or shrimp and make it into a full meal.
Jambalaya is a Creole dish found in Louisiana that came from the of Spanish and French influence in that state. It first
showed up in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The dish is a version of the dish Paella, a Spanish favorite. The Saffron
in the dish was replaced by tomatoes and Caribbean Spices in the Jambalaya version. The tomato version is called red
Jambalaya or just Jambalaya. The Cajun version or white version appeared after French Creoles melded into the Cajun
population in Louisiana.This version omits tomato and uses browned meat for color. Jambalaya is a combination of Andouille
Sausage, Chicken and Shrimp or other seafood and stock and it's all cooked together with the rice added at the end.
The flavor of this mix is the best of the Zatarain's products IMO. It is spicy and strong and tastes the least like a boxed
mix. It has a nice orange red color and great aroma. You can use the Jambalaya mix as is for a side dish or add the different
meats like Andouille, smoked sausage, smoked turkey, chicken, or seafood and create a delicious pot dinner. It's easy to make,
looks great and has a delicious spicy kick. This and the Caribbean version are my favorite of the Zatarain's mixes.
Zatarain's also offers Cheddar Broccoli Rice, Chicken Beef, Yellow Rice, Curry Rice, Caribbean Rice, Dirty Rice,Red Beans
and Rice, Black Beans and Rice,Spanish Rice and Rice Pilaf as sides or main dishes alternatives. Several of these come
in low sodium versions.
