Jambalaya fun to say, fun to eat. It's originally a Caribbean Creole rice dish that has made it's way to Louisiana after being seasoned by both Spanish and French influence. It's said that when Spanish colonials tried to make paella without saffron, which was hard to get in America, they ended up creating Jambalaya. The chorizo in this dish brings some Latin attitude to this dish while the red wine and the unique oregano and basil salts in our specially blended Jambalaya Paste bring some French elegance. Our signature Cajun seasoning has been tweaked to perfection rounding off this dish as a true melting pot of flavors from around the world.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Coat the chicken (and prawns if using) in the Cajun Seasoning. Heat 2 tbsps of oil in lidded, non-stick frying pan over high heat, then add your chicken (and prawns closer to the end) and stir-fry until the meat is golden and very nearly cooked. Then remove from the pan and set aside.

  • 2.

    Add the chorizo to the same pan and fry for 2 mins. Then add the Garlic Paste, onion, green pepper and celery, stirring quickly so all the veggies are coated in the garlic paste. Cook for about 3-4 mins or until they soften. Boil a kettle full of water while the vegetables are cooking.

  • 3.

    Add the rice, 400ml of boiled water and the Jambalaya Stock to the pan. Stir, bring it to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cover with a lid. Let it simmer for 12-15 mins, adding more water after 10 mins if needed.

  • 4.

    Bring the chicken (and prawns) back to the pan, mix well and simmer uncovered for a few more mins before serving in bowls!

Funnily enough this is the one we were most excited about trying this month but sadly it's the one we liked the least. Far too salty I'm afraid.

Very good. Was worried our 7yr old would find it too spicy but he'd didnt and like all of us ate a huge bowl.

Holly - Jun 19, 2018

Not bad, probably my least favourite out of the 10 odd dishes I’ve tried. Still yummy though

Tiffany - Jun 16, 2018

I used vegi chilli sausages, vegi chickless .... worked very well

Karina - Jun 16, 2018

All family tried it and at the beginning we didn't know do we like it or not. But then bite after bite we just loved it. I was adding more chicken, more prawns and more rice. So it was enough for all family and it wasn't to salty or spice. Defo going back for it.

Laurie - Jun 14, 2018

Love this meal, highly recommended

I used the 2-3 person pack but doubled the rice, water and chicken and it served 4 really well. Slightly too spicy for my daughter, but husnbabd, son and I really liked it.

Very nice and spicy. Of the two cooked so far I preferred this one.

Amazing, I never tried this before but it was very tasty with a decent kick.

Couldn't pick out any individual flavours, so it was just a bowl of textures that taste like chorizo.
