    1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Sauté chicken and kielbasa until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in onion, green capscium, celery and garlic. Season with cayenne, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until onion is tender and translucent.
    2. Add rice to the pot, then stir in chicken stock and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce.

    Note:

    Kielbasa is available at your local Polish deli. If you can't find kielbasa or Polish sausage, use any other type of sausage you wish.

    Altered ingredient amounts. This was great! After getting everything cut up, it was really easy to put together, and it was so yummy! I made just a few changes. I added about one and a half cans of diced tomatoes. I also used half green onions and half white onions. And I added about a tablespoon of cajun seasoning. It turned out great. I'll definitely make this again! - 29 Sep 2008

    Used different ingredients. Although not jambalaya fans, this recipe was pretty good for us. We skipped the green capsicum& celery, but added some ground thyme, as well as increasing amounts of worcestershire & hot sauce. This is very much a rice dish, so as long as you like rice you should be fine. When reheating you definitely need to add more chicken stock or it would be too pasty. - 29 Sep 2008
