Andouille and Chicken Jambalaya a la Shaggy
« on: September 28, 2008, 06:27:18 PM »

3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1lb of Andouille Sausage....If you can't get Andouille then any smoked sausage can be subsituted.
2 Onions
2 Green Bell Peppers, or substitute various colored Bell Peppers
3 Cups Rice
2 Cups Chicken Broth
2 Cups Bloody Mary Mix
EVOO
2tbs Minced Garlic
4 Bay Leaves
Salt, pepper, and Cayenne Pepper to taste.

I did this recipe on the fly today and everyone loved it.  I learned that I should have prepped everything first though so I'm starting that way.....

Julienne the two onions, place into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge.  Do the same with the two Bell Peppers and slice the Andouille into bite size pieces. Cover Andouille and place in fridge.  Then bring the two cups of Chicken Broth and two cups of Bloody Mary Mix to a boil.  Once boiling add 3 cups of rice, two Bay Leaves and cover.  If you want it spicy add Cayenne Pepper to taste.  Then splash a frying pan with EVOO and place the three chicken breasts in to cook.  Salt and pepper the Chicken Breasts to taste as it cooks.  Let Chicken Breast cook for 5-10 minutes.  Make sure you flip the chicken breast so that it will cook evenly.  Splash EVOO into a smaller frying pan and add Onions, Minced Garlic, and 2 Bay Leaves.  You may also add Cayenne Pepper to taste.  After onions begin to wilt, add Bell Peppers. I like my Bell Peppers to have a crisp texture but if you don't you may add it when you start to cook the onions.  After chicken breasts have cooked through take them out of the pan and and shred with two forks.  Set aside chicken and add the Andouille Sausage to the same pan that the chicken was in.  Cook Andouille.   By this time the rice should be cooked or near cooked.  Once rice is cooked fold in shredded chicken and Onion/Pepper mix.  After Andouille is cooked fold it in and serve. 

Serves 6-8

Any questions can be directed to me since this is the first time I've wrote a recipe.  I would like to give credit to General Buster for suggesting the Bloody Mary Mix as a cooking agent for the rice.

I probably should have but I didn't.  The only time I shed is when I run my fingers through my hair and I wasn't doing any of that today.

And yes, a good jambalaya is a WONDERFUL thing.

My dad said it was better than the Jambalaya at Fishbones and I have to admit it was quite tasty.

Jambalaya is so good. Have you had it from The Quarters? It's pretty darn tasty. 

I may have to try this, I'll make my dad attempt to make it.

I've been a few times. It's fairly over-priced, but the jambalaya is decent. Their pulled pork sandwich was too, but they took it off the menu.  :(
