  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups cooked, cubed chicken meat


Melt butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add celery, onion and green bell pepper and saute until tender. Stir in tomatoes, broth, rice, thyme, basil. garlic salt, ground black pepper, hot pepper sauce and bay leaf.

Bring all to a boil; reduce heat, cover skillet and simmer for about 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in chicken and cook until heated through. Discard bay leaf and serve hot.

Loved this recipe! Super easy, delicious and filling! My boyfriend liked it so much he ate it for breakfast the next morning! The only thing I would change is spice. It just wasn’t spicy like jambalaya should be. I will try adding andoille sausage next time I make this.
