How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Stir the onion, pepper and Cajun seasoning in the skillet and cook for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Stir the soup, water and rice in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes.  Stir in the shrimp and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through and the rice is tender.  Stir in the tomato and parsley, if desired.  Let stand for 10 minutes.

Recipe Tips

  • Flavor Variation: For a more classic jambalaya flavor, stir in 1 cup chopped smoked ham with the soup.
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

    This is an awesome recipe

    I usally use Zatarains Jambalaya rice mix and add shrimp, chicken, maybe sausage, and different veggies. My hubby tells me it is to spicy & I gave him acid reflux so I tried this recipe - He loved it! Shhh.....I spice it down a bit.

    Recipe a little bland.

    I added more cajun seasoning and then some ground red pepper and added in addition to the green pepper, sweet peppers.

    The flavor is there, added 1 red pepper, minced garlic, doubled the seasoning and left out tomato. The only problem was the rice, next time I will either do that on the side or use minute rice but otherwise very good and easy.

    Chicken & Shrimp Jambalaya

    Very yummy!! Like others have suggested, I cooked the rice seperate and added in later. The only substitution I made was a red bell pepper (since my husband doesn't like green ones) Very yummy, will be making this again! I gave this a normal rating only because of there was some prep work involved. Not too much, but normal chopping of veggies and meat.
