One of the things I’m excited to share with you on JillianHarris.com is my love of food. I have so many recipes, ranging from Canadian specialties to healthy comfort food. To start off, I thought I’d share my jambalaya.
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
