Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya Recipe

Jambalaya is one of Louisiana’s favorite dishes originating from the Cajuns from the southern parts of the country, where food was often scarce. At the time, there were many slaves in the country, so the word jambalaya supposedly derives from the French jambon, or ham, and the African aya, meaning rice.

Similar to paella, pilaf, or risotto, its key ingredients are rice, shrimp or crab meat, finely cut, spicy, smoked sausage and smoked ham, diced green peppers, garlic, celery, onions, tomatoes, and the obligatory spices – thyme and bay leaves.

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breast, cut into 1 ½-inch cubes

3 garlic cloves, minced
