Smoky, gently spiced andouille sausage and a spoonful of Creole seasoning give deep flavor and mild heat to this jambalaya, while the trinity of onion, green pepper, and celery provide a classic aromatic base to the dish. Parboiled rice is perfect for this recipe, since it cooks to tenderness just as the andouille, chicken, and shrimp reach doneness.

  • Add onion, bell pepper, and celery to Dutch oven; cook over medium-high, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and Creole seasoning; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is fragrant and lightly browned, about 1 minute.

  • Return browned chicken and sausage to the pot, and stir in tomatoes, broth, rice, salt, thyme, pepper, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil over high, and stir in shrimp. Cover Dutch oven, and transfer to oven. Bake until rice is tender and chicken and shrimp are cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven; gently stir jambalaya to evenly redistribute any liquid. Garnish with scallions and serve.
