Dutch Oven Jamabalaya

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Bell peppers
  • Jalapenos
  • Chicken
  • Andouille Sausage
  • Bacon
  • Rice
  • Cajun Seasoning

Directions:

1. Add your bacon first.  This gets all the good grease from the bacon going in the pot.  Put lid on and let cook a couple minutes.  Next add your garlic and onions.  Put lid on and let cook a couple minutes more.

3.  Cut up the chicken into big thumb sized chunks.  Cover the chicken with a good coating of the cajun spices.

4. Now throw in the chicken and andouille sausage into the dutch oven and let cook for a few minutes.

Next you want to fill up the oven with water until it covers what’s in the pot.  (Measure how much water you add because

you are going to be adding rice against that measurement.)

5. Let everything cook in the water for a bit.  Stir and turn the dutch oven occasionally.

6. Now add your rice.  You want to add half as many cups of rice as the water you put in.  So if you put in 8 cups of water, you want to add 4 cups of rice for example.  Stir it up and put the lid on and sit back and wait for the magic.
