Tasty Tuesday Jambalaya!

Somebody mentioned jambalaya as their dinner of choice on Fat Tuesday. I'm a week late, but here's my version!

Catmaster Jambalaya 


1 Tbsp butter
6 oz turkey smoked sausage, chopped
4 chicken tenderloins, (or 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast) chopped
6 oz tail off shrimp
1 can tomato sauce
1 bay leaf
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp creole seasoning
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup brown rice
1 dash Worcestershire sauce


Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, sausage, bell peppers, celery, and garlic, and saute until the onions are translucent and sausage is browned. Add the chicken and brown on all sides. Add the creole seasoning, bay leaf, tomato sauce, rice, and broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until the rice is tender about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding the shrimp during the last ten minutes or so. Add more water if needed. Season to taste with  dash of Worcestershire sauce. You can add more salt and pepper or hot sauce if you like, but you probably won't need it.
