    My husband and I made this dish last night and it was fabulous. I’m from the south and can say that the dish was nothing like a Jambalaya – but tasty just the same.

    I made this for my parents who have high cholesterol. They absolutely loved it and keep asking me to make it again!

    I’m not sure what effect it had (fat/calorie/fiber-wise), but I subbed brown rice for the pecan rice. As I like my food spicy, I added a tbsp or so of cajun seasoning and another 1/2 tsp or so of red pepper to the recipe and also added extra chicken. It was delicious and, except for the cutting up stuff, very easy.

    Great meal. I used a Jambalaya rice blend and it really added some spice.
