Son of a Gun, We're Gonna Have Big Fun....

How many of you grew up watching Justin Wilson's cooking show?  I couldn't understand a word he said, but I liked to watch his show. Maybe watching his show is what made me like Cajun/Creole cooking so much - maybe it's Bourbon street - who knows?  I do know that Cajun food is some of my favorite.

Tonight's Feature Recipe at Table 4 Five:

Quick & Easy Jambalaya

1 box Spanish Rice Rice a Roni
2 cups chicken broth
1 pound cooked shrimp tails off
1 pound cooked chicken cubed
1 pound cooked andouille sausage, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup bell pepper
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
Creole Seasoning (to taste)
Red Pepper Flakes (to taste) (optional)

In a large skillet, brown Rice a Roni rice in olive oil - according to package directions. Add Rice a Roni seasoning packet, 2 cups chicken broth and the remaining ingredients to the rice mix.  Bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes.  Yum Yum!
