TV Dinner: Jambalaya, by request

WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) – Today’s recipe is a special request.

It’s morning show producer Michael Hirst’s last day at 7 News, and he really likes jambalaya.

So, Chef Chris Manning made him jambalaya. It’s also a good recipe to have on hand for Fat Tuesday next week.

You can find the recipe for Creole seasoning here.


– 1 tablespoon olive oil

– 1 pound diced smoked sausage (or andouille)

– 1 cup diced onion

– 1 cup diced celery

– 1 cup diced green bell pepper

– 2 cloves garlic, minced

– 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning

– 1 cup uncooked long grain rice

– 1/2 cup chicken broth

– 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes

– 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

– 1/2 pound cooked, diced chicken

– 1/2 pound raw, peeled, and deveined shrimp (small shrimp work well with this recipe)

– Dash of hot sauce

– Dash of Worcestershire

– Grated parmesan for garnish

– Minced scallion for garnish

Add the oil and sausage to a six-quart stock pot on medium heat and cook until slightly brown, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients — minus the garnishes — and cook until the rice is tender.
