cost per recipe: $16.06

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 1/2 pound fresh or thawed frozen medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large tomato, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  • 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.
  • 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.

    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.

    I love jambalaya. But I hesitated when I saw the can of tomato soup. Wha...??? This was some delicious jambalaya! I added some leftover ham (instead of sausage) and added a little garlic with the veggies. Perfection!

  • Absolutely delicious!
