      This is the best Jambalaya I have ever tasted. My husband and son could not keep out of it. I made a big pot and it was gone within hours. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

      Great flavour & easy to make. What sets this recipe apart from others is the addition of the worcestershire sauce & bay leaves. Like others I used E/L essence spice & added finely chopped jalapeno peppers. I increased the chicken, sausage & garlic abit and it was the perfect consistency for us. I also added chopped green onions & fresh parsley close to the end of cooking. I found the dish plenty salty & did not need to add the extra salt called for in the recipe. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing.

      I always love jambalya, this was no exception! It just seems like such a wonderful way to get your whole meal in one pot! I omitted the shrimp, since there were non-shrimp-lovers present, but if it were just DH and I I would add them. I served with home-baked bread, for a wonderful mid-week supper!
