Jambalaya for the Potluck
Somehow I got to put up a recipe for a meat dish…..well, there is one problem with that. I don’t usually use a recipe. So I had to go searching for a recipe I like and would use. I got this one for Jambalaya from a collection of recipes from 1953. (keeping it vintage…lol)
I thought this would be a good one as you could make it to serve more than 4 people if you wish. Plus you can also season it more to your liking.
Here you go;
1 ½ cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup cooked rice
1 ½ cups cooked tomatoes
1 large onion chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Combine chicken, rice and tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes.
Add onion, green pepper, celery, and seasonings.
Turn into baking dish and cover with buttered crumbs.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Serve very hot.
Personally, I would throw in some hot peppers, garlic and Cajun seasoning. I am also thinking that some sausage and/or shrimp in there would be good…..
I have never had Jambalaya with buttered crumbs, so I am very curious as to what they add - flavor wise. I plan to make it this week, so I will let you know.
3 courses down 2 to go…..
