Happy Food Friday! This is one you may have seen awhile back, but because this weekend is all about dad, I am re-posting my Jambalaya recipe because it’s his absolute fav dish that I make! The only thing I’ve done differently this time around is added green peppers! So make sure you change your recipe cards at home to add the peppers in there!!
Jilly's Fresh Jambalaya!
In a skillet, on medium heat, brown:
6 slices of bacon, diced
1/2 cup of sausage (your choice, I used turkey kielbasa)
Remove both from pan, leaving 1/2 the drippings for good taste
In the pan, add:
Half white onion
1 garlic clove – diced
1 chicken breast
Once chicken breast is cooked add:
6-10 Raw Prawns (deveined & shelled)
2 tsp of Cayenne pepper
1 tsp of Oregano
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 celery stalks, diced
After a minute or so turn heat to low and add:
Bacon / Sausage Mixture
1 can of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup of frozen or fresh corn niblets
1/2 can of black beans
Serve on top of 1 cup of wild or white rice.
Garnish with Jilly's Spicy Yogurt
1/4 of a cup of sour crème
1/4 of a cup of plain yogurt
2 tbsp of Miracle whip
1 garlic clove diced
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
Make some time just for dad this weekend… he'll appreciate it more than any gift from the store;)
This is my favorite recipe that you gave us. I will not add green peppers but more beans or another vegetable. Great recipe. I would like it if you added nutritional values.
