Saute' 1lb of ground chicken.
Then add what Cajun cuisine calls the "Trinity".
1 Green Bell Pepper diced
3 stalks of Celery diced
1 onion diced.
plus 2tbs of chopped fresh garlic.
** I opted for ground chicken here because it was what I had on hand and it's easy (no cutting involved). You can substitute cut up chicken breast or thigh meat if you prefer.
I also opted to leave out the andouille sausage that they typically have in jambalaya to lower the fat content of the dish.
One bay leaf (dry or fresh)
1tbs of paprika
1tbs of onion powder
1/2tbs of dried oregano
1tps of dried thyme
1tbs of red chili flakes (or to taste)
1tbs of pepper
1tbs of salt or to taste
2tbs of flour
Saute the spices with the meat and veggies.
