Grilled Chicken Jambalaya


Even the word Jambalaya conjures up thoughts of exotic spices, Cajun cooking and aromatic dishes.  This week this is a very simple grill and simmer recipe that is well within the abilities of any home cook!

Cooking Method

Preheat grill.  Rub pork with cayenne, salt and pepper.  Cut onions, tomatoes, and green pepper in half.  Brush with olive oil.  Grill pork, onions, tomatoes and green pepper until they have good grill marks and meat has browned on the outside.  It’s not important that it be cooked through, but the longer the other items stay on the grill the more flavor it will have.  Watch everything carefully and remove items as they get cooked.

In a large pot, melt butter and add garlic.  As you remove items from the grill, chop up and add to pot.  Cut the meat into bite size pieces and dice the vegetables.  Add remaining ingredients to pot and add enough water to cover everything.  Simmer until rice is tender.
