I use store bought Creole seasoning from the grocery aisle for the oomph of cajun flavor, and I can usually find several brands to choose from. The result? The spicy taste of cajun flavors infused into the chicken, sausage and sweet shrimp makes this a true one-pot comfort meal.

    I made this Jambalaya tonight and it was GREAT! As a personal preference, I used a little more chicken and a bit less sausage, and I started with 1.5 T cajun seasoning to start and I didn’t add much more. Yes, I’m a spice wimp! I kept the Jambalaya hot in a crock pot for 2 hours and served it with cooked brown rice, corn bread muffins and a salad. A dinner for the history books!!
