Jacqueline’s Jambalaya Recipe

Jacqueline's Jambalaya

We have been all about trying as many different recipes as possible lately as a way to cook more meals at home.  This Jacqueline’s Jambalaya Recipe came about as we mixed several recipes together.  I have been having a hard time with different meats again so chicken, and chicken sausage have been some of my go-tos to get my protein in.  This recipe is packed with protein because it has chicken breast as well as one of my all-time favorites Trader Joe’s Jalapeño Chicken Sausage.  Jambalaya is also filled with a bunch of different veggies and TONS of flavor.  As always feel free to add more and different veggies to your liking as well as leave anything you don’t like out when you make it.

I hope that you enjoy this Jacqueline’s Jambalaya Recipe as much as I had fun putting this recipe together.
