Jambalaya-Rice Cooker Recipe

If you cannot make to to New Orleans the next best thing is to make this it in your Fuzzy Logic or other rice cooker. It is fast and easy.

3 cups beef broth
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups long grain white rice
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 cup diced cooked chicken
1 cup diced baked ham( I use turkey ham)
1 cup sliced Polish sausage*(I use beef or turkey)

In a bowl, combine the broth, chili, thyme, bay leaf and olive oil. Mix well and set aside.

Wash the rice in a bowl with cold water. Drain and repeat 2 or 3 times. Drain the rice and set aside.

Put the rice, bell pepper, onion, parsley, chicken, ham and sausage together in the inner cooking pan of the rice cooker and mix well. Add the broth mixture and stir well.

Place the inner cooking pan in the main body of the rice cooker, plug in the unit and press the cooking switch to start.

When the rice is cooked, open the lid carefully and mix all the ingredients together using the nonstick rice spatula. Close the lid and let it rest 10 minutes. Serve hot.
