What's REALLY cooking?
We loved eating Jambalaya years ago, but the Zatarain's mix is now a no-go. This recipe is adapted for a stovetop skillet from a crockpot recipe (since I didn't have 6 hours before dinner) and it turned out great! I thought the kids would hate it because it's (mildly) spicy and full of flavor, but they devoured the shrimp and liked the chicken too. Next time I'll double the rice and use more shrimp instead of chicken. I would probably add sausage too. Even as-is, this recipe was great, because the spice proportions were just right. The only recommended change would be to add more heat (if you like spice). This one's a keeper!

2 t oil
1 package (1 lb +) chicken breasts
1 chopped onion
1/2 C chopped bell pepper
1 thinly sliced carrot
1 t minced garlic
1 t oregano
1 t basil
1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t dried red pepper flakes
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 lb raw shrimp
1/2 C uncooked white rice
1 1/2 C water

Saute the onion, bell pepper, and garlic with the oil in a large skillet. Add all remaining ingredients (leave chicken breasts whole) and simmer covered on medium-low (hot enough to cook the rice and meat) for 35-40 minutes, or until rice and meats are done. Pull apart chicken breasts into smaller pieces with two forks.

Our children are allergic to nuts, eggs, milk, soy, peas, lentils, strawberries, sesame, kiwis, cherries, and chick peas. After cooking the same few dinners over and over, we got fed up and needed a change. I’ve decided to really learn to cook, and to share what I learn here. As I find recipes and adapt them to our allergy situation, I’ll share what works (and what doesn’t). If you have food allergic children and need ideas for new things to feed them, or just want some simple new recipes to try, I think you’ll find some here.

Please remember to check all product ingredient listings carefully when avoiding allergens.
