I lived in Baton Rouge for a year and really loved the culture and delicious food. My brother, Kyong, would take me out to eat often and Jambalaya was always a favorite. This is a modified recipe from Bully's Best Bites. Conecuh is the best brand of sausage-- the same kind my Dad would grill. It's not a really fatty and thick sausage. It's perfect. I usually half this batch
1 lb white rice or long grain (I use Jasmin)
1 lb Conecuh sausage
4 ck'n breasts (2 lb) cooked and chopped
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1-10.5 oz can beef bouillon soup
1-10.5 oz can French onion soup
1 stick butter
1-1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
Cajun Seasoning (we love Tony Chachere's)
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all ingredients together (except seasoning) in 2 qt. oblong greased casserole dish. If you are halving the recipe, you can use a smaller dish. Sprinkle seasoning generously on top and stir.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1/5 hours covered. Stir every 15 minutes.
**May substitute sausage or chicken with shrimp. I use all three by decreasing to 2 chicken breast and adding 1 lb shrimp
