Halfass Jambalaya

Halfass Jambalaya
But damn delicious‼️

This recipe omits the seafood but still is loaded with flavor.
I had to use up my striped bell pepper! I didn’t “feel like” acing knife cuts. 😜
And I went in different order, also coated rice before adding broth. Just little differences but same flavors.

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon oil
8 ounces cooked spicy sausage
2 medium yellow, green and or orange bell peppers, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 small red onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 14.5-ounce cans no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 cup chicken broth
2 bay leaves
1 cup uncooked rice
1 teaspoon hot sauce or more to taste

Coarsely snipped fresh Italian parsley, optional

In bowl, combine chicken and Cajun seasoning; toss to coat.

Heat oil in an extra-large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sausage; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add sweet peppers, onion, celery and garlic; cook 2 more minutes.

Add tomatoes, breaking up large pieces of tomatoes with a spoon. Stir in chicken broth. Add the bay leaves and the rice. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the rice is tender and all the liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Remove the bay leaves, stir in hot sauce and serve sprinkled with parsley, if desired.
