This leaner take on jambalaya features much less andouille sausage than the classic (health-conscious chef Rocco DiSpirito prefers chicken and turkey andouille). To make up for the assertively spiced meat, DiSpirito amps up the rice with chipotle chile powder and adobo seasoning, a zesty spice blend of garlic, oregano and black pepper. Slideshow:  More Chicken Recipes  Recipe from Food & Wine Chefs' Easy Weeknight Dinners.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the sausage to the skillet and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes. Add the sausage to the plate with the chicken.

  • Add the onion, pepper and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add the adobo seasoning and chile powder and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the rice and cook, stirring constantly, until well coated and just beginning to brown, about 1 minute. Stir in the stock, black beans, chicken and sausage and bring to a boil over moderately high heat. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until the rice is tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, then fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
