This healthy jambalaya recipe isn't missing a thing with plump shrimp, spicy sausage, and cajun seasonings. It easily lends itself to a healthy meal.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 38 minutes

  • 8 oz. smoked chicken sausage, sliced into 1/2 inch coins
  • 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain white rice
