This dish was okay, but nothing special. I found the flavor to be highly lacking.
Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

As with many healthier, quick to through together recipes, this dish didn't have super full flavor. However, as I ate my way through the bowl, it grew on me. It was easy to put together on a weeknight. My husband says he would have liked some okra and maybe a few shrimp next time.

i made this the other night and substituted the rice with a mixture of forbidden (black) rice and brown. it did seem a little tame spice wise so i'll definitely be adding more next time i make this. probably the mr lees hot sauce i buy at wahoo's fish tacos.

I always seem to have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe. I added two jalapeno peppers and Zatarains red beans and rice and it turned out very good with lots of flavor. I loved the simplicity and it was very quick, great recipe for leftover chicken.

I must have done something differently than the other reviewers, because this was a hit in our house. Maybe not authentic jambalaya, but what do you expect from a good-for-you recipe? The tip in the magazine said to use chicken sausage if you can't find the sausage called for in the recipe, so I used andouille chicken sausage that I found in the organic section of the grocery store. We liked it so much that, since I had most of the ingredients still on hand, I made another batch for our tailgate tomorrow.

I agree with the other reviewers this lacks some flavor. I added the canned tomatoes half way through the cooking time. Added a good helping of cajun seasoining and it was perfect. Putting in tomatoes at the end will give you a wet rice.

My family really like this. I used New Orleans Zatarian's wild rice (it was all I had on hand). Also added some red beans. Very good!!

This was very bland and the turkey sausage had an unappealing texture. Will not make this again. May not even eat the leftovers.

This was delicious. I added shrimp and a bit extra ground red pepper. I don't know how people rated this so low.

OK, easy supper, nothing special, chose this because we had everything on hand incl some frozen low-fat andouille. Probably would have been better if we'd used a cajun blend instead of just the red pepper & salt. And probably should have drained the tomatoes. Served with the recommended breadsticks. Edible.

I think it is a good start, but definitely lacks flavour! I think next time I will use more ground red pepper, some cajun spice and add the tomatoes earlier to infuse more flavours! I am hoping the leftovers are better after the flavours have had time to meld!

This is the second worst things I've ever made in my life. Bad texture, bland flavor (I added some Cajun spice), smoky sausage was nasty & overwhelming--waste of a delicious rotisserie chicken. If you are going to make this I'd suggest you make ALL the modifications the Reviewers are suggestion as this needs some serious help.

I wouldn't make this again. Really lacking that pop in flavor. I used my Penzey Spice's Cajun spice because they're great spices. Also used chicken Andouille sausage. This was just blah!
