I enjoy entertaining and jambalaya is the perfect one dish meal to feed a crowd. A Louisiana classic made with meat, rice and vegetables; jambalaya traditionally can take over an hour to prepare. However, the mouth-watering Chicken and Sausage Jiffy Jambalaya, from Holly Clegg’s trim&TERRIFIC Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle At Any Age cookbook, is so full of flavor, yet quick and easy to make, you will have extra time to whip up the scrumptious Pull Apart Bread! Use leftover cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken for an even simpler version. You won’t believe its diabetic friendly yet will feel good about feeding your guests a delicious heart healthy meal!
