Quick and Easy - but Delicious - Jambalaya!

“Even though I'm a born-and-raised Arizonan, both of my grandparents are from southern Louisiana. As a result, I grew up eating a lot of good, homecooked Cajun food!! This isn't a family recipe, but it rivals any I've had. (It's a combination of several recipes I found online.) I find myself craving it once every couple of weeks...luckily my boyfriend loves it too! :-) This can be made with 2 pounds of chicken, or 1 lb chicken + 1 lb smoked sausage. The chicken / shrimp is our favorite way to make it, and the chicken / smoked sausage is a close second.”
