Today I am sharing a Keto Friendly recipe for Easy Chicken Jambalaya. I found the inspiration for this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens Skillet Dinners magazine and thought it looked delicious, and I was able to make it with cauliflower rice, rather then regular rice. Which makes this a delicious keto friendly, gluten free, grain free, low carb alternative. Yum!!! It came out amazing and was super simple to make. It took about 45 minutes total, including prep and cooking time. The flavors were delicious together, and I love when a recipe has fewer then ten ingredients. I know you are going to love it just as much as we did.
Easy Chicken Jambalaya
1 pound chicken thighs, boneless, skinless cut into bite size pieces
4 Tb Cajun seasoning
1 lb andouille sausage, cut into 1 to 2 inch pieces (sugar free)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 yellow peppers, sliced thinly and then cut in half
1/2 red onion, sliced into thin wedges
2 14.5 oz cans stewed tomatoes, undrained
Cauliflower Rice ( not counted in the macros)
Put 4 Tb Cajun seasoning into a bowl and add the chicken pieces and toss them to coat well.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat and add chicken and andouille sausage and brown for 5 to 10 minutes. It took me about 10 minutes.
Next, add the peppers and onion, cook for another 5 minutes.
Then add to stewed tomatoes, stir and cover pan with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.
Serve over Cauliflower Rice.
I know you are going to love this recipe. I always love hearing from you, and would love to know how you like it.
Have a great week.
