How To Make Emeril Lagasse Jambalaya Recipe

A classic Cajun dish that’s a flavorful mix of rice, chicken, sausage, and vegetables.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 20 minutes



  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 lb Andouille sausage, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups long-grain rice
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, bell pepper, and celery, and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic, paprika, oregano, thyme, and cayenne pepper, and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  3. Add the chicken and sausage, and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes.

  4. Add the rice and stir to coat with the oil and spices. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice is lightly toasted.

  5. Pour in the chicken stock and diced tomatoes, and season with salt and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid.

  6. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the rice is fully cooked and the liquid has been absorbed.

  7. Stir in the frozen peas and cook for another 5 minutes or until the peas are heated through.

  8. Garnish with sliced green onions and serve hot.
