*For the Jambalaya:*

– 1 cup long-grain white rice

– 2 cups chicken broth

– 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, diced

– 1/2 lb smoked chorizo sausage, sliced

– 1 medium onion, chopped

– 1 bell pepper, chopped

– 3 cloves garlic, minced

– 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes

– 2 tsp Cajun seasoning

– 1/2 tsp paprika

– 1/2 tsp dried thyme

– 1/2 tsp dried oregano

– 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for spiciness)

– Salt and pepper to taste

– 2 tbsp olive oil

– Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


1. Prepare Your Ingredients: Begin by dicing the chicken, chopping the onion, bell pepper, and mincing the garlic. Slice the chorizo into bite-sized pieces.

2. Sear the Chicken and Chorizo: In a large skillet or a Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced chicken and chorizo slices. Sear them until they turn golden brown, then remove them from the skillet and set them aside.

3. Sauté the Vegetables: In the same skillet, add the chopped onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic. Sauté until the vegetables become tender and fragrant.

4. Add the Rice and Spices: Stir in the rice, Cajun seasoning, paprika, dried thyme, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper. Cook for a few minutes until the rice is slightly toasted, stirring frequently.

5. Simmer with Tomatoes and Broth: Pour in the diced tomatoes and chicken broth. Return the seared chicken and chorizo to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.

6. Season and Garnish: Taste the jambalaya and adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper, and more Cajun seasoning or cayenne pepper if desired. Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley for a burst of freshness and color.

7. Serve Hot: Spoon generous portions of this flavorful jambalaya onto plates, and get ready to enjoy the spicy, smoky, and hearty flavors of New Orleans right in your home!
